Safari, houseboats, National Parks - all waiting for you in Zimbabwe! Africa plays host to some 'must do' marathons and the Victoria Falls Marathon is definitely one of them. With a vibey abmiance and an epic sunset cruise, the event feels much more like good fun than hard work, yet the run should be taken seriously. If the inclines on the route don't take your breath away, the breathtaking backdrop of the iconic Victoria Falls surely will. Running a marathon and viewing the enormous Victoria Falls is a must for all runners, especially if you plan to run a marathon on every continent. The Victoria Falls Marathon offers participants the opportunity to enjoy great scenery such as running alongside the mighty Zambezi River, Victoria Falls waterfall, game viewing when running through the Zambezi National Park and a glimpse of the town of Victoria Falls en-route to the finish line. The atmosphere is electric with loads of friendly faces supporting and manning the water stations as well as festive marimba bands playing next to the road. Runners can unwind after the race on an unforgettable Marathon Sunset Cruise with complimentary snacks and drinks to enjoy. On board this sunset cruise you may see wildlife such as elephants, hippos, crocodiles as well as fantastic birdlife on the shores of the Zambezi River. Besides the breathtaking landscapes, you will encounter on the marathon race there is plenty more to do and see. Known as the adventure centre of Africa, for good reason, the Victoria Falls has a wealth of activities available! Choose one of the standard travel packages, or tailor-make your own by combining the marathon race with some rafting, canoeing, boat cruising, game viewing, an elephant back safari or even a bungee jump! Safaris in neighbouring Botswana and Zambia are also available and we would be happy to furnish you with details of travel packages in the surrounding region and make all your travel arrangements for you. In addition, there are daily flights from Johannesburg to the falls, which makes linking from international flights to the region easy. Not just a marathon but a life changing experience! See why. Distances Marathon Half Marathon Fun Run 7.5km Course The Victoria Falls marathon route starts at the post office opposite the Kingdom Hotel, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. All runners are advised to spend the night before the race in the town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe as the border post will be closed early morning on the day of the race. The route takes you from the Kingdom Hotel towards the old bridge between Zimbabwe and Zambia. From this bridge you have spectacular views of the Victoria Falls. Turn around just before the Zambia border post before crossing the bridge again and heading up Zambezi Drive parallel to the Zambezi River. Once past the massive baobab tree you turn onto the road leading up to the Zambezi National Park. Run a shady loop into the park where you may see some game. We have game rangers deployed along the route for safety. Continue to Victoria Falls town and residential area. Enjoy the festive atmosphere and enthusiasm from the water stations before finishing at the school on the Kazangula Road.
