FootActive is proud to sponsor The Rwanda Marathon.

The focus of the marathon each year is to support the Msaada cow project ( importing in-calf heifers from Ireland to Rwanda and allocating them one cow to one family. The recipients have been carefully chosen for their ability to care for the cow and its needs. Weekly checks are made by a vet to ensure animal welfare is maintained to a high standard.

Now in its sixth year, the marathon 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.

The Rwanda Challenge Marathon takes place on Sunday 21st February 2016. Visit for more details or call 07855 173971 today.
