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 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 for a total of two laps, 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!
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 through the greenery of the hills to the village of Ngawu where lies a beautiful Hindu temple.
Moving out of Ngawu, a gradual climb begins, winding through dirt trails encapsulated by forest. Emerging from the forest, the trail thins out onto the caldera rim offering expansive breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape as they venture through the side peaks of the park. Runners continue along the rim to Dinglik Viewpoint where they again meet paved road as the course climbs to the peak of Mt. Pananjakan, for an absolute spectacular view of Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park. Making their way down from Pananjakan, runners follow the winding paved streets along the sides of rolling hills to Wonokitri where they will continue on for a second lap of the course for a total distance of 42.195 km.
