The 7th edition of the Zayed Charity Marathon in Egypt is going north to the beautiful shorelines of Alexandria on December 23rd, with the profits going straight to the Ahl Masr Foundation's hospital for victims of burns and accidents.

The marathon will be broken down into two main races: The 2 km race with multiple categories for people with disabilities, children under 10 years old, and elderly runners over 60 years old, and the larger 10 km race. A mandatory registration fee of EGP 100 will be applied to all marathon participants.

The marathon was launched under the auspices of the UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan in 2001. The marathon was then held six times in Egypt, with the first three editions in Cairo in 2014, 2015 and 2016, and the 2017 edition held in Luxor. The marathon was then held in Ismailia in 2018 and 2019, before going to Suez in 2020.
