Quick facts about 100 Km Pharonic Race 2017

The idea was first initiated when in 1977 the Egyptian Egyptologist, Ahmed Moussa who while digging discovered a piece of rock telling the story of Pharaonic soldiers running a race of 100 Km. This race took place in 690-665 B.C, during the reign of king Taharka, when the king went to inspect an army camp and found the soldiers in perfect physical fitness. It was then that he laid down the rules for the running race.
