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,
