Description

Listen to Iron Maiden, and run to the hills! Admire the highest free standing mountain in the world, while relishing the breathtaking sights of the gigantic permanent glaciers flowing down from the summit of this gorgeous mountain each February during Kilimanjaro Marathon. Kili, as the locals call it, is definitely a sight that one has to see at least once in a lifetime. What better occasion to truly experience this wonder of nature than during a 42.2K marathon or a 21.1K half-marathon. If you are not in extraordinary shape, or just don’t feel like challenging your body, you can opt for 5K Fun Run. Finally, all three of the races start at the Muccob Stadium in Moshi, Tanzania, and head along the main road to Dar-El-Salam, before turning around a heading back to Moshi. Regular water tables and the peculiar ‘shower,’ as well as the breath-taking sight of the Kilimanjaro giant will keep you fresh and motivated along the route. At the finish area, you can enjoy music and live entertainment, food, drinks, as well as a relaxing massage. Combine intensive physical activity with sightseeing and entertainment and visit Moshi, Tanzania in late February for Kilimanjaro Marathon!
