The Kilimanjaro Marathon
The Kilimanjaro Marathon (42.2km), Half Marathon (21.1km) and Fun Run (5km) is going into its 9th year! As a fully registered IAAF race, the marathon has official marshalling, time-keeping and refreshment points at regular intervals. It may be used as a qualifier for Comrades. The race is run under the watchful eye of Mount Kilimanjaro, with the altitude gain being quite manageable and with the entire race being completed between 830-1150m asl, on good tarred roads. Enthusiastic local crowd support cheers you along the route, and the social runners amongst you may even stop for a cold ‘Kili’ beer along the way! Combine this race with a Kilimanjaro climb, or a safari to the Serengeti, or perhaps relax for a few days on Zanzibar – the perfect destination to rest those weary legs.
