    How to explain the emotion of running on this land of history.
    What a sensation to start this amazing marathon in the “early morning” under a magnificent full moon on the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, to follow in the footsteps of Ramses and to approach the tombs of the Valley of Kings.
    Even if the course proposes 4 identical loops without great difficulty, it allows even to admire remains of the greatness the Egypt of Pharaons.
    What an extraordinary experience to be able to run with the young Egyptian children by crossing 2 villages not far from the sacred banks of the Nile.
    Only one advice, come to take part in this exotic marathon and do not forget your camera.

    Another inspiring chapter in how to run the world, Didier! Amazing photos, thanks so much for sharing them along with your review. My sister has wanted to visit Egypt for many years, and your description now makes me want to join her and to experience the region as only a runner can. Congratulations on another memorable journey my friend, I'll be admiring your photos for a long time! LESS
