The Kampala Night Run is back! The run made its entry onto Uganda’s social scene in a big way with a successful debut last year, and now returns for a second edition come Sunday, June 2.

The second edition of the one-of-its-kind fun run was officially announced on Thursday at a press conference held at Route 256. It will be offering much more too, including a longer route and more fun activities and lots of music performances.

Brand 7D CEO Ronald Kivumbi reveled that the run will be three kilometres this time round, up from the two kilometres participants had to deal with last year.

The flag-off is planned for 7pm, and the start and end points have been retained at Torino Bar and Restaurant as was the case in 2018. Also returning this year are the glow accessories which captured the imagination at the inaugural event, with a well-lit route completing the “Lite the Way” theme of main sponsors Tusker Lite.

After the run is done, the flag-off point; Torino Bar will be converted into a party venue as it will host the run’s after-party.

“We are really excited about the return of the Tusker Lite Kampala Night Run. It was huge last year and we are looking forward to bringing friends together yet again to break a sweat while having fun at the same time,” said Cathy Twesigye, UBL Brand Manager, Premium Beers.

Some of the prizes lined up for different categories include those for the shortest time to reach the finish line, first runner-up, second runner-up, the most creative runner, most stylish runner, most “lit” runner and the best squad.

And to turn up the temperature, runners will be ushered into a night of top class entertainment with performances from artistes including Irene Ntale, Winnie Nwagi, Hit Nature, Pallaso, Grenade and top disc spinners in Kampala.

By Our Reporter

Jamaican reggae duo, Chaka Demus & Pliers are not coming to Uganda, we can confirm. Popular for songs like “Tease Me” and “Murder She Wrote” among others, the Jamaican stars had been rumored to be the headliners for a Valentine’s Day show to be held at Kololo Independence Grounds. As it turns out, it is just that, a rumour.

Salavdo who is hosting the Africa Laughs show at the Kololo Independence Grounds on Valentine’s Day debunked the rumours while speaking to media on Tuesday.

“Chaka Demus & Pliers coming to my show were simply that — rumours,”  Salvado said. “This is why you have not see any artwork or official communication from us about them.”

Salvado, whose Africa Laughs show is returning for the 5th edition, further revealed that the show will instead feature Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize.

“Harmonize is going to bring the Valentines feeling to the show,” he noted.

The Africa Laughs show will also be graced by top comedians from across the continent like Nigeria’s Kenny Blaq, Kenya’s Eric Omondi, Congo’s Eddie Kadi and Zimbabwe’s Alfred Kainga. They will crack up comedy lovers alongside Uganda’s very own like Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko among others.

The show is slated for 14th February this year.
