International Marathon Zanzibar Bwejuu-Makunduchi

Let's go east: We will extend the West African Marathon Challenge to East Africa. Zanzibar is a a great spot to run.


This is the first Int'l Marathon on Zanzibar. We will run the white beaches of coral sand and rocks between Bwejuu and Makunduchi on the south east coast of Unguja. Unguja is the main island of the Zanzibar archipelago. The way back to Bwejuu will follow paved and unpaved roads. We will cross an intresting archaeological site (a cave in the coral reef limestone) and the villages of Jambiani and Paje before finishing in the tropical garden of Mustaphas Place in Bwejuu.
