Your week of adventure, culture and volunteering
- ActionAid began work in Uganda in 1982. We work in 50 districts across the country, supporting communities in the poorest and most remote areas.
- In recent years, Uganda has transformed itself from a country with a troubled past to one of relative stability.
- The Uganda Marathon will take place in Masaka, about 2 hours drive southwest of the capital of Kampala.
The weather and running conditions
The weather has never been an issue for competitors. The race takes place at the end of the rainy season, which brings cooler temperatures of an average 25 celsius. Plenty of water stations and suncream dot the course.
