Early Bird Registration Opens February 15, 2014
On September 1st, 2013, over 900 runners and 5,000 spectators from over 30 different countries swarmed to the tiny, isolated mountain village of Wonokitri to take part in the first ever Bromo Marathon – racing for the advancement of education in rural Indonesia’s Tengger region. On September 7, 2014, the adventure continues with the 2nd edition of the annual event!
The Bromo Marathon is more than just a race, it’s a total community effort. Originally established by Peace Corps volunteer Shane Butler and Tengger local Dedik Kurniawan, the Bromo Marathon works alongside community members to provide an event which aims to improve education, health, and economic prosperity throughout the many low-income, low resource communities inhabiting the region.
Furthermore, the Bromo Marathon not only provides participants with a beautiful and challenging course but immerses them in true village life and the unique culture of the Tengger in an effort to promote cross-cultural interaction and peace through understanding.
The Full Marathon course covers a distance of 42.195 Kilometers. Starting and ending at the Tenggerese village of Wonokitri, runners circle several villages along the Tengger Caldera, immersing themselves in the beautiful landscapes, serene temples and unique Tenggerese communities 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 1950m to 2750m. We at the Bromo Marathon like a good challenge!
