After a first edition of running for fun around Kampala, the second edition of the Tusker Lite Kampala Night Run returns June 2, 2019.
The return of one of its kind fun run was officially announced on Thursday by event organisers, Brand 7D, at a press conference held at Torino Bar and Restaurant.
Unlike the first edition, the route has been extended with more fun activities and star artiste performances lined up, to make it more memorable.
Brand 7D CEO Ronald Kivumbi confirmed that the Night Run will be three kilometres this time round, up from the two kilometres participants had to deal with last year.
The flag-off is planned for 7.00pm, and the start and end points have been retained at Torino Bar and Restaurant as was the case in 2018. Also returning this year are the glow accessories which captured the imagination at the inaugural event, with a well-lit route completing the Lite the Way theme of main sponsors Tusker Lite.
When the run is done, the flag-off point; Torino Bar will be converted into a party venue as it will host the run’s after-party as runners turn into revelers.
Some of the prizes lined up for different categories include; for the winner of the run, first runners-up, second runners-up, the most creative runner, most stylish runner, most “lit” runner and the best squad.
And to turn up the temperature, runners will be ushered into a night of top class entertainment with performances from artistes Irene Ntale, Winnie Nwagi, Hit Nature, Pallaso, Grenade and surprise disc spinners in Kampala.
