Organised by and for ‘members of a drinking club with a running problem and, or those that belong to a ‘running club with a drinking problem,’ the run due tomorrow, will begin at the Pearl of Africa Academy in Nsambya off Gaba road.

All embracing event But you don’t have to be one of them. The race is open to all fit - ness freaks, running enthusi - asts and those whose New Year resolution is keeping fit.

Runners can decide to start from a single point. The other participants can do a ‘relay’ in pairs, by one doing half of the route while the other completes the rest of the course.

The 28-year-old Kampala Harsh run will cover the hills of Nsambya, Kibuli, Nakasero, Old Kampala, Namirembe, Lubaga and Lubiri. Participation is at a fee of sh20, 000. The money will be paid at Grand Imperial Arcade, shop number 47.

The fee guarantees one a competition T-shirt, water and all the fun that comes along especially the free flowing beers after completion of the race.
