Route Maps 2019

The route passes through many small-holder farms, villages, sections of Moshi town, banana and coffee plantations and patches of forest, providing great excitement to the residents who give ample vocal support.

The atmosphere in the stadium is electric with local bands playing, entertainment, crowds of local enthusiasts to cheer the runners, and lots of food and drink for sale.

The race is completely backed up, and manned by local organisations. Crowd control and traffic control are provided for, as is medical assistance and communications.

Official timekeeping is arranged, as is an official prize giving and function attended by local dignitaries.

Note – there are water points – some with Coke amply supplied along the routes.
