Travelstart Egypt At The Urban Race

It all began when our marketing team thought “What is it that Egyptians currently love the most?” The answer was proudly “Sports”. This is when we decided to turn the beach mode on & join the Urban Race in Marassi at the North Coast.

So what the Urban Race is about? It is an Obstacles Race where participants run, jump, crawl, swim to overcome a set of obstacles of varying difficulty. It tests their endurance, perseverance and strength. The race is open to everyone, those who complete it receive a medal, however the first & second winners in both females & males categories were entitled to a very special prize brought to them by Travelstart Egypt (TS), along with other sponsors.

Our day started at 9am in the morning, building our booth hand in hand next to the finish line, a table, a huge banner, and some wood and we were ready and set.

It was super hot & sunny, close by the start line around 500 participants were queuing to register their names, get their numbers and t-shirts, along with ushers, people who came to watch, or cheer for their friends, among the participants was the famous satirist Bassem Youssef, looking serious and ready for the race.

Everybody seemed excited, yet suffering from the heat, this is when our team interfered, adding our TS flavor.

We introduced Travelstart Egypt to each and everyone, while giving away Tambola tickets and discount vouchers, for a chance to win one free domestic flight for a lucky winner, or to use the voucher code while booking flight tickets online -to any given destination- to get a discount (payment can be in cash at our Maadi office, at your doorstep, via bank transfer, or credit card).

Wished them luck in case they are racing, a joyful day in case they came to watch or cheer for their friends.

The race was watched from several view points, preferably using binoculars, all participants went through water, mud, crawled, climbed, ran, jumped, lifted sandbags, and finished the race on the shores of Valencia beach in Marassi.

Everybody enjoyed it and completed it successfully, except for a few who sadly gave up too soon.

As a Travelstart Egypt reward to the 1st & 2nd winners in both males and females categories, each received consecutively an airline ticket to anywhere in Europe, and an airline ticket to anywhere in Egypt…Sounds exciting, no????
