Running the Rift Marathon - November

Based at Kyaninga Lodge, the marathon is a big day in the local and international calendar. The Running the Rift 42km, 21km, 10km and 5km takes place every year in November. Beginners run alongside Olympians. Locals run alongside visitors from around the world. All here to run the most stunning race route imaginable. You will run high up on the Rift Valley Escarpment, looking out as the Rwenzori Mountains melt into the East African plain.  All followed by a big after-party and BBQ. More information is here.

So Kyaninga Can Dance

Prepare for a dance extravaganza in a unique setting. Spend the day dancing on our purpose built dance floor, set against the open backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the Rwenzori Mountains. In the day, practise your moves with coached dance sessions in readiness for the evening dance competition. In the evening, show off your new dance moves and wine and dine into the early hours. Follow the Facebook group here for more information.


Kyaninga Inclusive Sports Day - November

The day after the Running the Rift Marathon it is the KCDC all-inclusive Sports Day. Local children living with disabilities and their families come to show the town of Fort Portal that disability is not inability. Ugandan Paralympic Silver medalist David Emong leads the games, as marathon runners from around the world joined the children and families for a whole host of fun - tyre races, tag rugby, football and a drum circle to name a few. Join us this year for what will be another memorable event. More information is here.
