Hathor100 is Ultra Egypt’s flagship multi-stage ultra-trail marathon, taking place over two days in the mountains of South Sinai in December each year.
About 85 KM south of Ras Sudr (Red Sea, Egypt) and over 30KM deep into the Sinai Peninsula lies the seldom visited Serabit El Khadim.
Serabit El Khadim, South Sinai
CAI or SSH
Departure at 7:00 am from Maadi and Heliopolis, Cairo.
It’s a 4-5 hour drive we aim to arrive early to our camp to enjoy some good food and relax
The first stage starts at 6:00 am making a 40km loop south of the campsite and starts to the NE side of the camp.
This day is filled with sandy and rocky terrain, runners will experience a couple of sandy upward slopes and amazing rocky valleys. Towards the last 10km of the race, runners will climb up a mountain to arrive at the Hathor Temple and enjoy a bit of a rest at the third checkpoint “@ approx. 30km” at the top of the mountain.
The second stage starts at 5:00 am forming a 60km loop north of the campsite but starts to the SE side of the camp.
This day is more about open spaces, resilience of running plain fields yet experiencing amazing views as Jebel El Tih “the lost mountain” (it stretches over 200km to the middle of Sinai) and winds you through a maze of canyons and valleys.
Breakfast at the campsite and depart back to Cairo around 9am.
We should arrive at the same meeting point.
Dates for 2021 Race will be announced soon.
