Great Ethiopian Run

Established in 2001 by global long-distance running legend, Haile Gebrselassie, the Great Ethiopian Run attracts over 40,000 international athletes every year to visit Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and run a 10kms race some 10,000 feet above sea level. Despite coming from many different nations, runners in the event are united by a shared goal – to make our world a better place. So, join the Orbis team and raise funds that will bring hope in sight for thousands of visually impaired Ethiopians with every step you take.

Special thanks to Ethiopian Airlines for supporting this event.
