The Erbil Marathon is a great event and I am very happy to be a part of it. It is a great lesson in self-sufficiency and preparation.

Running four laps around Erbil in the blistering sun turned out to be a great idea! There were plenty of sight to distract you such as the Citadel and Jalil Khayat Mosque.

This might be the most intense and beautiful marathon ever!Rating:
