On September 1st, 2013, the first annual Bromo Marathon will be held in the villages surrounding Bromo-Tengger-Semeru Nat’l Park – racing for the advancement of education in rural Indonesia’s Tengger region.
It’s more than just a race, it’s a total community effort. Alongside Peace Corps volunteers, local community members work to establish an event which will provide an opportunity to improve education, health, and economic prosperity throughout the many low-income, low resource communities inhabiting the region.
The Bromo 10K course covers a distance of 10 Kilometers. Starting and ending at the Tenggerese village of Wonokitri, runners circle several villages throughout the Tengger, finishing back at Wonokitri. The course immerses runners in beautiful landscapes, serene temples, and the unique communities of the Tengger along the way.
The course also provides a diversity of terrain with half the route on paved road, and half on dirt trail. Incorporating several hills throughout the run, elevations vary from 1900m to 1975m. We at the Bromo Marathon like a good challenge!
Departing from Wonokitri, runners begin the first stretch of the race off-road, running along the beautiful hills of the Tengger to the small village of Podokoyo where the route meets paved road. Here they continue downhill to the village of Tosari where lies a beautiful Hindu temple.
Moving out of Tosari, a gradual climb begins, winding up the rolling hills of the Tengger back to Wonokitri marking the 10K Finish.
