On a quest for the perfect trip.

Have a Run in Ethiopia

Would you travel to Ethiopia and run a half marathon in October?  This sounds very interesting..

From the website:

Ethiopia Welcomes You

After traveling and competing internationally for the past 20 years, I am very excited to finally invite the world to my homeland of Ethiopia for the very first “Haile Gebrselassie Marathon.”  We have put together a great team of race organizers, from Ethiopia, America, and Europe, who are among the most experienced and professional in the business.  This will be a marathon like no other: world class, but uniquely Ethiopian.   While you are here, I want you to discover Ethiopia’s incredible history and culture, so we have created a series of tours designed exclusively for our runners.  There are certain competitions that will always stand out in my memory, and I want my marathon to be that way for each of you.  I look forward to welcoming you to Hawassa, Ethiopia in 2013, when we bring the best of marathoning to the land of the long distance runner.
