Rotary Dar Marathon
Rotary Dar Marathon (Kenyatta Grounds, Dar Es Salaam) – since Tanzania has a reputation for producing top runners that have excelled at various marathon events around the world (including the New York and Boston Marathons), it’s perhaps no surprise that Dar Es Salaam would have its own running event.
The Rotary Dar Marathon is a community fundraising event led by the seven Rotary Clubs in Dar es Salaam, and brings together 15,000 participants and over 100 volunteers. The Rotary Dar Marathon (held annually in September or October) includes a 21.1km half marathon, 42km cycling race and 9km & 5km family fun walk.
