Coca-Cola holds second round race


The second round of the 2012 Coca-Cola Road Race Series was held on the first Sunday of the Ethiopian New Year September 15th, 2012. The race as expected had 15,000 participants.  The 2012 Coca-Cola Road Race Series is the biggest cash prize award yet, with over 220,000 birr up for grabs. To qualify for the overall cash prize participants have to finish in the top 5 in each of the three races.
The 2011 Coca-Cola Road Race Series introduced chip-timing during their mass participation running event on Thursday 21st July 2011. This innovation allowed each participant to record their time accurately. Using state of the art technology, Coca-Cola and the Great Ethiopian Run have teamed up to take running in Ethiopia to a new scale.  The third round of the race will be held on October 14th, 2012.
The Coca-Cola Road Race Series is a 3-race series taking place in Addis Ababa. The race has been organized for the second time this year as the partnership between Coca-Cola and Great Ethiopian Run continues.
