ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 / -- Ethiopia is a trending destination you will see on more and more travel media must-visit lists. A great way to see what all the buzz is about is the Great Ethiopian Run (GER), happening Sunday, November 18, 2018 in the vibrant capital city of Addis Ababa.

Billed as the "Greatest Fun Run in the World," the 10k event was founded in 2001 by Haile Gebrselassie, the renowned long-distance runner and revered Ethiopian hero. Today, the race attracts more than 40,000 participants from around the world, including hundreds of elite runners.

GER is not your run-of-the-mill 10K as Addis Ababa sits 8,000 feet above sea level, so the race is not without its challenges -- yet the heady fun of the carnival-like atmosphere as the race joyously snakes through this bustling, fascinating city is what makes the day so unforgettable.
