On Friday, about 7,000 people participated in the Cairo marathon. The event, which has been organized annually since 2013, has gained prominence in recent years.
According to the marathon’s organizers, this year’s race was held to raise awareness about depression.
According to the website for the marathon, jogging is one of the finest antidepressants.
“I am one of those individuals whose employment causes a great deal of stress. Therefore, we relieve this tension through exercising. In particular, running relieves stress and promotes emotional stability. Running also improves cognition and facilitates meditation. It facilitates overall self-control and enhances mental wellness “explained Walaa Fathalla, a participant.
The race was conducted in the Heliopolis neighborhood of Cairo. This year, there were four racing categories: 21 kilometers, 10 kilometers, five kilometers, and a family run.
