Following the success of its inaugural edition last year, the Bromo Marathon 2014 is returning to highlight the magnificent Mount Bromo in East Java on 7 September 2014 participated by hundreds of runners.
The event will feature three categories of competition, including: the Full-marathon distance (42.195 km), the Half marathon distance (21.0975 km), and 10 kilometer run. The start and finish line for the event will take place in the Village of Wonokitri - in the heart of the Tenggerese culture in East Java. Here Hindu descendants of Java's ancient Majapahit rulers have retained both their religion and culture. The Full Marathon will start off at 7:00 am with the Half-Marathon starting a half-hour later, and the 10-kilometer run a half-hour after that.
Scheduled to take place in arguably one of the most dramatic settings on earth, the event will take competing runners through villages surrounding the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park and along the Tengger caldera. 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 varying from 1,400m to 2,400m.
