  • The 10km race will happen this Sunday 10th November 2019. Runners will be flagged off at the Arua Golf Club in Arua town. 
  • The 2,500 pcs of kit sold out a week to the event.
  • Shida Leni, the National Record Holder (400m) will be the lead runner
  • All proceeds from the run will will be used to improve maternal health facilities in a Health Centre IV hospital, to be selected in the region.

MTN Regional Marathon is set to happen in Arua this Sunday 10th November 2019 as part of efforts to give the annual MTN Marathon season a national feel. This follows the successful regional run that was held last Sunday in the Eastern district of Soroti.

Introduced last year, the MTN Runs were successfully conducted in Mbale, Gulu and Mbarara. So, this year, in the spirit of giving an opportunity to all, the runs were taken to different districts namely; Soroti, Aua and Masaka. The regional races are now an annual feature of the MTN Marathon season. 

Held under the theme; “A good reason to run”, the 2019 MTN Regional Runs started in Soroti last Sunday the 3rd November. This Sunday 10th November, action has been moved to Arua town. Thereafter, the regional runs will be wrapped up in Masaka on Sunday 17th November 2019 ahead of the main MTN Kampala Marathon in Kampala on Sunday the 24th November.

While addressing the media at a press conference held at the Desert Breeze Hotel in Arua town this morning, James Ndyamuhaki, the Senior Regional Business Manager, said that the Telecom introduced the regional races as a way of allowing people in the regions to showcase their abilities and also to give people in the participating regions, an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of others through the causes that the MTN Runs and Marathon support.

“The response to participate in this run has been overwhelming. The kits sold out early this week. This goes to show how enthusiastic the people of arua are towards the cause of the run and also taking part in the actual run. Like all the other Marathons, the money that we are going to collect will go towards improving maternal health in the West Nile region,” Ndyamuhaki added.

With an estimated 336 deaths per 100,000 live births, Uganda’s maternal mortality is one of the highest in the world. This explains why for the third year in a row, the Marathon will focus on improving maternal health.

Proceeds from last year’s Marathon are being used to complement efforts by the Ministry of Health to improve service delivery in 5 Health Centre IV facilities across Uganda. 

The Guest of Honor, Mr. Shuaib Toko, the Arua Resident District Commissioner thanked MTN for taking the prestigious run to Arua town and reiterated how ready the people of Arua were for the run.

“The people of Arua have been waiting for this opportunity. That is why they bought they bought all the kits. We feel honored to finally have the opportunity to make an impact on the issue of maternal health. I welcome this noble initiative and I thank everyone who bought the kits for contributing towards the improvement of maternal health in our area.  I urge you to turn up and run for your own health this Sunday. I will participate in this run myself,” Toko said.

While the regional races will feature a single 10km route run, the Kampala Marathon will feature five routes including; the full marathon (42Km), half marathon (21Km), the 10Km race and 5Km fun run and the wheelchair race. 

Shida Leni, who will be the lead runner this Sunday urged the public to take part in the run as a way of showcasing their talent.

“This run is a good platform for any aspiring athlete. Additionally it will also help improve maternal health,” Leni said.

The wheelchair race that was previously held a weekend before the main marathon event will this year take place on the same day as the main marathon to foster inclusiveness. 

According to MTN, Special attention has also been made to ensure every participant has a vest that fits and enables a comfortable running experience.

Many football fans awaited the resumption of the English Premier League. To make more money, it’s worth paying attention to any betting online – 1xBet.com provides a lot of interesting offers with good conditions for each bettor.

Before the start of the Premier League season, virtually no one doubted that Liverpool would fight for the champion title. The Merseysides have not taken gold medals for a long time, and with the current lineup and even more so under the leadership of Jurgen Klopp, it has finally become much easier for them to do it.

However, no one expected Liverpool to get such an advantage over the second place of the standings. For the first time for the whole campaign, the team lost only in the 28th round, and this is a very good indicator. But Jurgen Klopp admitted that he didn’t plan to fail in the Premier League until the end of his contract (until 2024). Of course, the coach was joking, but the Merseysiders did not show such a powerful game for a long time. Every fan of Liverpool can bet now on FIFA eSports battle Champions League – 1xBet.com offers good tournaments to make predictions for any teams that have even left the best European competitions.

In addition to the success of the Merseysides, there are enough other unresolved issues in the Premier League:

  1. Will Chelsea be able to defend the fourth position? Manchester United imposed serious competition on the Aristocrats, being only a few points behind.
  2. What are Everton’s prospects? To earn more, 1xBet offers any betting online opportunities to its customers under the best conditions. Considering the not-so-good results of Everton this season, it’s worth more carefully analyzing the bets on the Toffees, which, it seems, will finish the championship without specific tasks.
  3. Who will leave the Premier League? The contenders for relegation are Norwich and Aston Villa, however, Bournemouth’s position is also questionable, as well as Watford’s and West Ham’s.

In general, there are still many interesting events in the English Premier League to expect, and it is very good that the championship has finally returned after the break.
