Mpanga Trail Run!

There’s so much going on in Uganda these days if you like the outdoors. Our buddy Alex Queenie and his company ‘Activate Uganda’ are really busy keeping the event calendar full with Running, biking and multi-activity races. Pretty much every month or two there’s something to do!

After a quick break to see family in the UK I came back to UG just in time for the Mpanga trail run. This race is notorious for its wet muddy forest trails, almost like a natural obstacle course of deep puddles, fallen trees and uneven bridges.

All this means, FUN!!

So no PB’s are gained on this course, but it’s a truly great course and a great place to run and being just 45min outside of Kampala, it’s a perfect place for a race!
