The Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon takes place on the last Sunday in June every year at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro in the little town of Moshi, Tanzania, Africa. The marathon is a 10.5 loop where the runners run the same course 4 times. In Africa it is very difficult to find well paved roads — and also roads that are not difficult to run because of the hills. Therefore, the Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon is a loop.

On the course are ten highly decorated water stations manned by the local seminaries. They stay on the course for over 6 hours for the slow runners to complete the race. The oldest runner to run this course and climb the mountain is 75 years of age. Don’t let age stop your adventure.

Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon Starting Line

The Original Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon is Now in Its 33rd Year!

The Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon is the only marathon that does not invite any professional runners. Every year an amateur runner wins. That means you! In the past our winners were teachers, electricians, editors, doctors, engineers, etc. They run for the love of it. And to the Mt. Kilimanjaro Marathon, they are the heroes of the sport of running and need to win an International Race.

You can win!
