Reporting on the progress leading up to the inaugural running of the event, event manager Dedik Kurniawan said, “When we first introduced the idea, we knew it would be a lot of work, but we’ve had so much support from the community that everything has been running quite smoothly. This event is more than just a race to the people here, it’s a way to open their community and share their way of life, while raising money for a good cause.”

A charity event, proceeds from this year’s marathon will be used to support area schools by building libraries and qualified staff to support literacy programs.
