The Firth  Ngorongoro half Marathon (21 km/14 miles) will be held on Saturday, the 14th of April, 2012. It is still possible to register as a participant, which is free of charge. Everyone participating will get a 50 US$ discount on any ZARA TOURS safari or climb. Even if you’re not into participating yourself, it will be a lot of fun to cheer on the many local and foreign runners!

This year, ZARA Charity was sponsor of the marathon , which was arranged for the first time.

Last year, In April 2011, more than 350 world class runners from East Africa and non East Africa resident made their way through one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth, beginning at the Ngorongoro Crater and ending in Karatu Town. Participants ran the full half marathon as individuals and this year, Zara Charity  are arranging the run, are encouraging corporate teams to run the race as a relay. For 2011,  5 km and 1 km “fun runs” for children are added.

Zara Charity  is still looking for sponsors of the event. If you see yourself in a position to assist, contact Steve Kamau, Zara Charity  (zara5@zaratours.com). Sponsorship opportunities start as low as 100,000 TSh (75 USD) to sponsor a runner (Bronze package) and 1 Million . TSh (750 USD) to be a main sponsor. Also contact Steve if you want to participate as a runner.

The marathon is an opportunity to raise awareness about malaria which affects between 300 and 500 million people every year, over 90% of whom live in Africa. Malaria kills over one million men, women and children every year. In Tanzania one person dies of malaria every 10 minutes.
