11 June 2018 Organisers of the 2018 TOTAL Great Ethiopian Run are predicting a record time of just ten days for all 44,000 places to sell out ahead of the race. Registration opens on 11 June 2018. The speed of the sale of places for the race has become commonplace since early registration was introduced five years ago. Based on participants’ feedback, this year’s race participants will wear a top-quality t-shirt which is sure to add value to Africa’s most colourful race – and the demand for places.
Registration for individual participants will take place at ten Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) branches as listed below. Furthermore, participants with their own CBE account can register at any branch of their choosing by mobile or internet banking. Organisations registering groups of participants can register at the Great Ethiopian Run office by providing an official letter from their organisation.
