You are cordially invited to participate in the 2nd International Marathon in El Gouna which will take place on 6th  December 2009. Four races in different categories and a charity race are planned. We have thought of many ideas to make this a very attractive and lively event. The social program will give you the opportunity to meet with others and to get to know more about the region.

The moderate climate around 20 degrees with plenty of sunshine, the crystal-clear water and sandy beaches, the fascinating desert and mountain landscape and the colourful underwater world will ensure that you will spend a wonderful time during the marathon in El Gouna. Swimmers and divers will certainly enjoy themselves.

Egypt with its 7.000 year old culture offers a great variety of different cultural fascinations. You can visit Cairo, Luxor or take part in an excursion through the desert.

The farewell party and prize presentation with many delicious oriental specialities and colourful oriental dances will give you a taste of "1001 nights".

We are looking forward to your participation.

Welcome to Egypt.
