On most days you'll have the chance to to run - at your own pace - with local guides and runners while also taking in some of the key tourist sites of Addis Ababa, the Arsi Highlands and the surrounding area. The whole trip culminates with Africa's biggest road race, the Great Ethiopian Run International 10K where you can race around the streets of Addis Ababa brushing shoulders with an array of Ethiopia's world-famous athletes.
