    The Giza Plateau is the home of the Great Pyramids of Giza, world-renowned landmarks and among the best preserved structures remaining from Pharaonic times. The Pyramids Complex comprises the three main pyramids: Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure. The Great Sphinx lies on the east side of the complex and is attributed to Pharaoh Khafre. Each of the three structures has its own surrounding buildings which include smaller pyramids for the Pharaohs' wives and families, as well as temples and other facilities. The Great Pyramid of Khufu is the largest and last remaining Wonder of the Ancient World, although all three pyramids are often given that designation as a group.

    As with many major races around the world, the Marakez Pyramids Half Marathon will adopt a strict cut-off time in order to maintain the level of competition for each distance and due to the inability to block off the roads indefinitely while runners complete their race. The cut-off time for the 5K, 10K and 21K is 11:00 am, which gives runners a full three hours to finish their race.
