2023 Route Maps

For the 2023 Kilimanjaro International Marathon, we have made a change to the route for the FULL (42km) race. It will still start at 06h30, in the stadium, but this year will do the uphill first –eg up towards the mountain – before coming back down and through Moshi to turn out on the road to the TPC Sugar.  The route is similar to the HALF marathon, until approximately 19km mark, where the full marathon breaks away and does a loop down through Moshi town.  Please look for the MARKERS ON RACE DAY and listen to the marshalls.

This change allows the marathon runners (42k) to complete the ‘up-hill’ in the first part of the race, in the cool of the morning on fresh legs !  It should also mean less congestion for both events on the small dirt road section between 8 and 10 km.

Updated route maps, measured by World Athletics standards, can be found below.
