Participants registered for different races including a 5km walk, 10 and 21km run as indicated on their tags carrying green, red and blue colors respectively.

There was drama as people in their different ages turned up for the race with a lot of determination to win the 2 plots of land that Hamu Mukasa had put on stake.

Several of them turned out to be victims when they fell off the race and many others fainted one after the other. Thanks to the scouts who did a big job to bring them back to life?
