Led by the Entebbe Mayor Vincent Kayanja, the participants started the race at the Mayor's Gardens Entebbe, traversed the villages of the L.Victoria neighbouring town and back to the gardens where medals were awarded to different winners.

The Mayor assured the rugby fraternity of the Municipality's support to have a facility that can host international rugby events because such events come with several benefits.

"We are committed to supporting sports because it is the only way of engaging and mobilizing the youth in development and we shall do whatever it takes to have the Mongers facility finished," Kayanja stated.

He lauded Africell, Sadolin Paints and United Nations for the support and urged other corporate companies to emulate them and support sports especially rugby in the area.
