ENTRY TO THE RWAMAGANA MARATHON & HALF MARATHON COSTS £150 PER OVERSEAS PARTICIPANT

ExPats working in Cenral East Africa who wish to take part in the Rwamagna Marathon may enter for a reduced entry fee of £25.


This is because many ExPats who work in Rwanda are frequently on low wages, and in many cases are volunteers and would not be able to afford the full entry fees of £150.

Msaada trusts entrants to be honest with regard to payment of the correct entry fee, as any funds raised by this event go to assist vulnerable families in the Eastern Province.

Full details of the Msaada project can be found at www.msaada.org.
