This coming April is the 9th annual Ngorongoro Marathon, an event held to raise money and awareness for the fight against malaria, and to support the Maasai pre-school. Hosted by Zara Tours together with its sister group Zara Charity, the Ngorongoro Marathon will welcome more than 1,200 runners from 20 different countries to compete in what has been the single largest educational undertaking in the district and the region.


This year’s run will be held on 16th April 2016, and is open to any and all runners looking to compete in one of the largest half marathons in Tanzania. This race has been recognised by the Tanzania Olympic Committee, and is a qualifying race for the national team.


To celebrate and offer opportunities for more people to support this cause, Zara Tours is presenting a special chance to attend the event. The world-renowned tour operating company will be giving away a trip for two to attend the Ngorongoro Marathon in Tanzania. For more details, visit this post on the Zara Tours Facebook page.

In addition to the marathon, the event will also include other sponsored events in Ngorongoro, such as a visit to malaria projects and a dinner gala held after the run at the High View Hotel in Karatu.


Zara Tours and Zara Charity hope to bring together the public and the private sectors to raise national awareness for the fight against malaria and significantly drive up the prevention and treatment of the disease.

The marathon will also raise funds for the Ngorongoro pre-school. For more information about the school, watch the following video:
