Ready… Steady…GO! Ready… Steady…GO! Kilimanjaro Marathon 2016

runners2015

Come along to Tanzania and take part in the 2016 Kilimanjaro Premium Lager Marathon (or 21.1 km or 5 km Fun Run).

This iconic race is set on the lower foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, with incredible views of the mountain – as she towers over the athletes. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, but with some of Africa’s best runners competing for the purse – you will enjoy racing against some top talent.

Combine this race with a Kilimanjaro climb, or a safari to the Serengeti (it’s a fantastic time to go to Serengeti with the wildebeest calving and plenty of predators), or perhaps relax for a few days on Zanzibar Island – the perfect destination to rest those weary legs.

The ‘race weekend’ package includes: return airport transfers from Kili airport, accommodation BB, entry fee, and entry to our hospitality tent. If you would like more information on a variety of travel packages/safaris, contact us: reservations@wildfrontiers.com,
or log on to the website www.kilimanjaromarathon.com.

The Kilimanjaro Marathon: Tanzania’s biggest sporting event

“The Kilimanjaro marathon? Are you running up the mountain?”
“Of course not! The run is around the town, through the foothills. The mountain’s just the backdrop. Apparently it’s stunning!” Or so some runners believe…!

The Kilimanjaro marathon takes place this year on 1 March around the town of Moshi, Tanzania, on the slopes of the highest “free standing” mountain in the world. The race has grown steadily since its inception thirteen years ago and has expanded to include several side events such as a half marathon, disabled 10km race, a fun run, as well as a lively series of pre-and post-race music gigs.
