ROUTE & WATERPOINT INFORMATION
Please note all routes have changed. Refer to Map.
Full Marathon – from the stadium, the route is a fairly flat 10 out on the road to Dar es Salaam, returning on same road back past the stadium gate – the Full is now 30 minutes behind the half, on the same route. The second half of the race is the half marathon, described below.
Half Marathon – starts 0700, out of the college gate, and turns north, towards the mountain. Uphill, about 250 altitude gain in 8 km. At about 8 km, the route follows a dirt road for about 2 km, though some farms and schools, before joining Lema Road, and the long downhill back to the stadium.
Note – there are waterpoints – some with Coke – and sponge points amply supplied along this route.
Disabled wheelchair and handcycle race – 10 km – from the stadium, the route turns left at Mweka road, and then onto Kilimanjaro Road, on a fairly flat, shaded route. It then heads north up Lema road, to the GAPCO turning piont, before retracing steps to the stadium.
FUN run – starts at the YMCA roundabout, on the Arusha Road, approx 50 m west of roundabout. Runs down to the Clock Tower, then along Boma Road, past Arusha Roundabout and along to YMCA roundabout again, then up Uru Road to enter the Stadium from this gate, eg the east.
There will be several roaming ambulances and first aid at the finish. If you should experience any difficulty:
STOP AND LET A FELLOW RUNNER ADVISE A STAFF MEMBER AT THE NEXT WATER-STATION WHERE YOU ARE. THEY WILL LET US KNOW
There is also a sweep-vehicle at the end.
PLEASE THROW YOUR LITTER ON THE ROAD WHERE WE CAN EASILY FIND IT AND DISPOSE OF IT.
