Great Ethiopian Run 2021

Sunday 14th November, 2021

Date Sunday 14th November, 2021

Since 2008, Orbis has taken over 300 people to Addis Ababa to take part in the Great Ethiopia 10km Run. This year, Orbis will be hosting a 10km run in Ireland - will you join us? Or complete your 10km from wherever you are in the world. Sign up today and get your very own race t-shirt signed by the great Haile Gebrselassie.

This year the run will take place in Addis Ababa on its usual date in November (Sunday 14th November 2021). However, due to concerns and uncertainties about international travel related to COVID-19, we will not be able to travel to Ethiopia for this year’s race.

Orbis is joining forces with the organisers of the Great Ethiopian Run and will be planning a 10km run in Ireland on Sunday 14th November. You can join us in a set location (TBC), or you can participate wherever you are in the world.

The entry fee of 150 euro includes a race t-shirt signed by Haile Gebrselassie and an official race medal.

Over the years, Orbis has raised over €1 million through participating in the Great Ethiopian Run and following this success we are delighted to once again be partnering with the team in Ethiopia 2021.

Next steps

The Great Ethiopian Run - the real thing

Although we are disappointed to not be able to travel to Ethiopia in 2021, we look forward to partnering with the Great Ethiopian Run in hosting a virtual event. We remember with fondness the many trips to Ethiopia in the past and look forward to returning in 2022.

"Don't even think about this, just sign up and the rest takes care of itself"
