Magara Cross Country

Magara Cross Country.
Occasionally organised by the Sports Department of NGD Foundation, the Magara Cross Country is a running sport in which individuals, athletics teams, and SFA Academy teams (of Magara Star AC, Gitaza Star AC, Minago Star AC) run a race on open-air courses over natural terrain such as dirt or grass.

Sometimes these runners are referred to as harriers. The course, typically 4–12 kilometres (2.5–7.5 mi) long, may include surfaces of grass, and earth, pass through woodlands and open country, and include hills, flat ground and sometimes gravel road.
