Every year since 2003, the Kilimanjaro Marathon is held in the town of Moshi. Placed at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro at 700-850m above sea level, it is a one-of-a-kind running event. The atmosphere in Moshi during race weekend is electric.  The race takes place in the shade of the jacaranda trees and there are plenty of places to explore around the race track, lots of restaurants, and venues offering a full range of foods from local fare to fantastic Indian Cuisine and live music around town. The excitement around the event is enormous, with locals coming out to support the athletes.  The event finishes in the MoCu Stadium, in Moshi – with music, food, and drinks. Run the Kilimanjaro Marathon with us!

This AIMS-registered race has been set up to promote the sport in Tanzania and has the official backing of the Tanzania Tourist Board, the Tanzania Amateur Athletics Association, and the IAAF. The marathon is split into three races: a standard 42.2 km marathon, a 21.1 km half marathon, and a 5 km “Fun Run” all taking place in the foothills of Kilimanjaro.  All races are marshaled, with traffic control and medics along the way.
