Join Aidlink for the Ugandan Marathon over the June Bank Holiday weekend in 2019. The Marathon takes place in Masaka, Uganda, the home of Aidlink Partner Caritas Maddo.
In 2019, Aidlink will join forces with Uganda Marathon as an official charity partner. You can be a part of this special event and participate in the Uganda Marathon (which includes a full marathon, half marathon and a 10km option!), raising vital funds for Aidlink programmes in Uganda and Kenya.
Aidlink has worked in Masaka for almost 15 years. In addition to running (or walking the marathon), Aidlink will be proud to introduce you to our partners in Masaka and some of the communities that have benefited from Aidlink support in recent years. We would love for you to join us!

The race will take place in Masaka, in Southern Uganda, through a picturesque course across the Ugandan countryside with beautiful views of Lake Victoria. This is Uganda’s largest marathon, and you will be joined by 3,000 people from around the world. There will be water stations and medical support throughout the route to keep you hydrated. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Ugandan countryside and all for an important cause.
