CairoRunners Egypt’s leading community running group, had us on our toes this weekend, as the log-awaited for Pyramids Run was called off hours before it was due to kick start for ‘Security Reasons’ on Thu 8/10 around 8:00 pm in a Facebook update. (The run was planned for Fri 9/10 at 7:00 am) Much to the runners and the community’s absolute delight comes another Facebook update that the run WILL take place on Saturday 10/10 instead.
#PyramidsRun is on, #PyramidsRun is called off, #PyramidsRun is back on! Hurray, it finally happened and it was EPIC. The CairoRunners team pulled it all through and managed to have 2000+ runners enjoy the run of their lives.
Here is how Egyptians captured the moment on Instagram:
