Imagine running through the lush landscape of Uganda. As your feet pound the dusty red roads you're cheered on by the dancing and singing of local villagers and children who have gathered to support you. Just as your energy levels start to dip and weariness kicks in, smiling children join your side and spur you on for the remainder of the course.
The story behind the Uganda Muskathlon The Muskathlon will take place in the north of Uganda, in the region that has been battered so badly by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) of Joseph Kony. Until today the people live with the trauma and scars they got through this war. Many children were abducted, many women raped, many men killed. For large parts of the north of Uganda this war brought the region back to extreme poverty, with little hope to break this cycle. Compassion is running projects all over the north of Uganda, providing children an opportunity to break the cycle of despair and poverty. Muskathlon-Event The track leads partly over dirt roads through the hilly terrain and partly over main roads. The Muskathlon will be held in the north of Uganda.
