The original multi-function headwear. Buff started out life as the brainchild of a keen trail motorcyclist and is now a staple for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. You'll be hard pressed to find a trail race, marathon or ultra that isn't full of runners sporting Buffs in the many different ways they can be worn. Buffs are perfect for the dusty and hot Ugandan trails, and we are honoured to have Buff supporting us in creating this adventure of a lifetime

When it comes to creating local and sustainable solutions to deep rooted socioeconomic issues in Uganda, KadAfrica hits the nail on the head. Based in Running the Rift's home town of Fort Portal, we are incredibly excited to have KadAfrica on board. In their own words:

"KadAfrica envisions a world where out-of-school girls are economic drivers of their communities. We use passion fruit farming as a vehicle for girls to build their own support systems to become independent and empowered decision makers"

A truly incredible business based in Fort Portal. Visit the KadAfrica page for more info.
