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.

It is not rocket science that Chameleone only decides to follow his two brothers Pallaso and Radio&Weasel, had it been any others maybe we would be wondering the criteria he used.

Chameleone is one of the most followed Ugandan artistes on Twitter and not following you may not go so well with you as an artiste.
