The Mt Kilimanjaro Marathon takes place in February every year at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro.
The Kilimanjaro Marathon (42.2km), Half Marathon (21.1km) and Fun Run (5km) is going into its 9th year! As a fully registered IAAF race, the marathon has official marshalling, time-keeping and refreshment points at regular intervals. It may be used as a qualifier for Comrades. The race is run under the watchful eye of Mount Kilimanjaro, with the altitude gain being quite manageable and with the entire race being completed between 830–1150, on good tarred roads. Enthusiastic local crowd support cheers you along the route, and the social runners amongst you may even stop for a cold 'Kili' beer along the way!
