    Great Ethiopian Run

    No. 1 Road Race in Africa

Great Ethiopian Run Road Race + Denakil Depression (Afar)

Great Ethiopian Run is a 10 km road race that takes place every year on the third week of November. More than 45,000 people participate from all walks of life including famous international athletes, ambassadors, and other international communities. It's one of the amazing events many Ethiopians long to take part in with all the fun moments you will encounter along the race.

Denakil Depression is also another adventure to embark yourself to explore one of the lowest, hottest, and most inhospitable places in the world. Despite this, you will forget all the challenges once you confront the molten lava lake and the off-this-world eye-catching features of the landscape that resulted from the mixture and tectonic activities of the sulfur, potassium, and other acids in the underground, not to mention the very thick salt planes beyond the horizon and many more ...

The Great Ethiopian Run is the No. 1 road race in Africa. It started in 1993 in the Ethiopian Calendar and 2001 in the Gregorian Calendar founded by the world-famous Ethiopian long-distance athlete Haile Gebre Selassie. He won the first race and in later years he greets and cheers all participants and opens the race.
