The Source of the Nile Trail Running Challenge is a prestigious race with the most stunning and scenic trail you will probably ever run in your life! Set at the source of the Nile, Jinja, Uganda, the different running trails will not only take you along the banks of the great River Nile but upon rocky paths past the rapids and up to the scenic hills overlooking lake Victoria and down through villages and banana plantations. This year we will include a 50km distance for the truly adventurous Ultra Trail runners and 30km Mountain Bike Race. This Ultra Trail race and Mountain Bike Race is proudly organized by Activate Uganda on the 19th of September 2021
