The Kilimanjaro Marathon and Half Marathon take place at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, and the scenery is spectacular. Tanzania is a diverse country with snow-capped mountains, endless plains of wildlife, and sunny tropical beaches.
Elevation gains are manageable as the entire descent is between 830m and 1150m on paved roads. Combine this run with a Kilimanjaro trek or Serengeti safari, or relax for a few days in Unguja, the perfect place to rest your weary feet.
