The Uganda Athletics Federation (UAF) in conjunction with main sponsors MTN (U) Ltd have also offered the general public free entrance to the park to watch the competition as a corporate social responsibility and also to thank the public who thronged Kololo Independence Grounds massively to support Uganda team during the 2017 World Cross Country Championships.

Because of the value UAF attached to the world event, Jinja was honored and overwhelmingly voted to host the 2018 National Cross Country Championship, a major event on the UAF calendar. The stage is already set for the championships which UAF will use to select the national cross country team to represent Uganda at the 5th edition of the Africa Cross Country Championships due March 17, 2018 in Algeria.
