This past weekend, the Wadi Degla Festival took place. The festival was organized by Ultra Ibex, a trail running and outdoor adventure event organizer, primarily to give cross-country runners a racing event where they can trek through the beautiful landscape of that national park.
The Roody 50X Ultra Trail event took place on Saturday and had three intervals for each skill level: 56 KM, 26 KM, and 10 KM, where winners received vouchers and bragging rights and naturally, a good run.
Wadi Degla Festival also aims to educate visitors about protecting this unique landscape with a day dedicated to cleaning up the garbage left by other visitors in a proactive bid to keep this place pristine.
Wadi Degla Protectorate is close to Cairo and is a popular outlet for locals wishing to get in touch with nature and do weekend BBQs. Sedan-friendly trails help make it accessible to pretty much anyone; no 4×4 car needed.
The protectorate offers a range of different activities from cycling to camping to even safari. If you’re an outdoors person, then it’s the place for you.
