The Color Run: Time to Brighten up Egypt

Published

on

The Color Run is a widely recognized event that has taken place in many countries, it is also known to be the happiest 5K on the planet, and is one of the most entertaining events ever. As runners, who start their journey in white, get doused with colors at every 1-KM checkpoint.

The race first kicked off in 2012, and since its launch, it has witnessed the participation of more than 7 million runners in 40 countries, and thus donating more than $5 million to charities.

So not only is it a fun run, but also a charitable one!

Now the happy news is that it’s coming your way to Cairo this Saturday, April 13th! Sponsored by I-Events, and powered by New Giza. So get your running shoes ready, for you will be running (or walking) the happiest 5K you will ever get to experience.

The event is entirely for fun purposes and is not competitive at all, as it is un-timed; meaning that coach potatoes like myself, can join the race as well without worrying about a certain time to reach the finish line.

And what would make a lazy person join a 5K race? The answer is simple, tempt them with colors, food and music!

The event doesn’t end by the finish line, but quite the opposite, the fun actually starts with a finish Festival, where attendees are promised to witness a musical line-up, activity booths and food to bring back your energy for dancing!

I bet you can’t name a better way to motivate runners to cross that finish line.

Don’t give in to excuses, we know summer and working out can be hard, but with food, colors and music, you will have no excuse to skip this colorful event.

So prepare your white shirts, put your fitness mode on, and buy your ticket now, via TicketsMarche.

Have a wonderful and colorful run/ fun.

Necropolis

Have you guys ever found deep interest in the ancient land of Kemet that is known as Egypt today? Growing up, some of you might have had vivid dreams of becoming an archaeologist some day.

Egypt specifically is one of the hottest spots for archaeology till this very day. It is no new news that we keep finding ancient artifacts, mummies, and tombs to learn more about. You might think that your dream of becoming an archaeologist might be over due to the coronavirus pandemic, but needless to worry, because we have some amazing news for you history lovers!

Fortunate for us, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has decided to commence launching tours for the country’s most intricate and historical archaeological land sites as well as museums to allow visitors to view and enjoy the ancient heritage all the way from home! Isn’t that cool?

The tours will be guided by the most professional tour guides as well as archaeologists in town which shows that the experience will be an amazing one, indeed. For those of you who are interested, you’ll find more details as well as these guided tours on the Ministry’s website and various social media platforms.

The slogan to this newfound initiative is “Experience Egypt from Home. Stay home. Stay safe.”  This is all a part of the Ministry’s genuine efforts to allow people to explore and visit the ancient Egyptian civilization all the way from home in these rough times.

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, Egyptian’s tourism levels have decreased tremendously which is why this is a hopeful method of trying to gain back our tourists as well as locals. Believe it or not, Egypt is one of the first countries to think of such an interesting idea to start things up again.

The first tour that will be granted to you is a deep look inside the Menna Tomb in Theban Necropolis, one of Egypt’s oldest lands. This is in cooperation with the ARCE, the American Research Center in Cairo.

We hope you all find this initiative quite exciting and intriguing, don’t forget to visit the website for more information on your virtual tour! Stay safe, folks!

2020 Olympics Officially Postponed

Olympic Games 2020

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, many people and countries as a whole have been taking drastic measures to help keep the virus at bay and their people safe. At first, we haven’t imagined the magnitude of the virus and how badly it would affect things and people on a global scale.

It started out with talk of a few football leagues and matches “maybe” getting postponed for the time being. That alone had left football maniacs who were looking forward to such events quite angry and worried. Regardless, they hadn’t thought of things getting worse and claimed that it was just a vague idea being proposed.

A week later and everything had gone up in flames. One by one, it had been confirmed that these leagues and matches are postponed and some even cancelled unfortunately. On the long run, the countries were forced to shut down all public domains that could help gather people around and make the virus spread even worse.

Schools and Universities were also shut down to be thoroughly quarantined ans steralized giving people the privilege of working from home . From there, things had began going haywire. Everything was being shut down for sanitation and people were sent home to break the chain.

What was uncertain about being postponed was the 2020 Olympic Games that people were seriously looking forward to. This is one of the most important sports in history and people from various countries travel the globe to watch such an event. This is exactly why it has officially been decided that the Olympics is being postponed till 2021. What?

In regards to the millions of people who were going to show up in Tokyo to watch the games take place, this event had to be postponed for countless reasons. First of all, there are currently no flights or airlines that are working because of the Coronavirus outbreak. Secondly, the athletes might be physically prepared to compete but mentally they are extremely stressed and worried leaving them unfit to participate. Lastly, many athletes have been infected with the virus which means that the teams would be uneven thus the scores would be unfair.

“Our athletes have been magnificent in their positive attitude to training and preparing, but the stress and uncertainty has been extremely challenging for them.”- Australian Chief

At first, both Australia and Canada had already decided to not compete and withdraw from the Olympics this year due to safety reasons. After some serious reconsidering, it was decided altogether that the games would be postponed till next year.

It was announced as of Sunday that 5,683 cases have been confirmed in the UK leaving at least 281 dead. Do you guys expect that in the health state the world is in, it’s fit to go on with initiating the Olympic games? No way.

It’ll jut be a year away, it’s not like it’s permanently getting cancelled. We’d rather be safe than sorry.
