THE MALCOLM BOWN MEMORIAL
RWANDA CHALLENGE MARATHON
DO SOMETHING AMAZING
Now in its seventh year, the marathon in Rwamagana, Eastern Province, has grown each year with more international runners taking part to become one of the premier African marathons. The support from Rwandan runners has been brilliant with the Rwandan marathon team taking part and the opportunity for new local talent to be spotted by the Rwandan Athletics Association encouraging many aspiring professional runners to take part.
Community Fun Run
The community fun run for young people and older people started in 2016 and proved to be a big hit with the locals in Rwamagana.
The event was the brainchild of the Rwamagana District authorities and is a way to involve all of the community in a healthy and sporting activity which is of benefit to everyone.
This is expected to develop into a major community activity in the coming years.
