The Luxor Marathon

The Luxor Marathon

In 1977, Egyptologist Ahmed Moussa discovered an ancient inscription describing a 100km footrace for the pharaoh’s soldiers. With this historic sporting event in mind, the first annual Luxor Marathon was first held in 1993 and is now a prominent international event, attracting some 2000 participants each year. The Luxor Marathon is held in the cool and dry month of February on the scenic West Bank.
