November 2014 was the Great Ethiopian Run 10km race’s 14th edition. The race’s first edition took place on Sunday 25th November 2001, as an experiment in mass-participation running in Ethiopia by the great runner of all times Athlete Haile Gebresilassie. Today, as well as being Africa’s biggest for 40,000 participants, it has become a yearly event and one of the biggest days in Ethiopia’s sporting calendar.
