Bali’s near neighbor of East Java is planning a Full Marathon in arguably one of the most dramatic settings on earth. Set to take place on Sunday, September 1, 2013, the Bromo Marathon will be run through the villages surrounding East Java’s Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park and along the Tengger caldera

 
Leaving Wonokitri runners will get off the paved road running through the village of Podokoyo where the race again returns to paved highways. The course continues to the village of Ngawu – the location of an ancient Hindu temple.
 
From Ngawu the course climbs a winding path on dirt trails leading to the caldera rim overlooking the memorable moonscapes of the volcanic park. At the Dinglik Viewpoint the route returns to pavement for climb to the peak of Mt. Pananjakan where those running against the clock will be torn between continuing the race or stoppiong to enjoy the commanding view of Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park. It’s all downhill for the final stretch back to Wonokitri on a total course of 42.195 kilometers.
 
The event will feature three categories of competition:
 
• Full-marathon distance (42.195 km)
• Half marathon distance (21.0975 km)
• 10 kilometer run
 
Some of the proceeds from this year’s event will be used to support area schools by building libraries and qualified staff to support literacy programs.
 
The Full Marathon will get underway at 5:30 am with the Half-Marathon starting a half-hour later and the 10-kilomter run a half-hour later.
 
The start and finish line for the event will take place in the Wonokitri Village – the heart of Tenggerese culture in East Java where Hindu descendent of Java’s ancient Majapahit rulers have retained both their religion and culture despite the pervasive wave Islamization that has swept across the Island of Java.
 
This picturesque setting is dominated by nearby Mount Bromo and hilly agricultural plots. In keeping with the rustic setting for the race, 50% of the course is set on paved road and 50% along dirt trails on elevations ranging from 1900-meters to 1970-meters above sea level.
 
Registration remains open until 2-weeks before the race with registration rates ranging from US$15 to US$45.
 
Registration fees include a goodie bag, a race t-shirt, personalized bib, finisher medals, fluid and fuel stations, entrance to the race expo and entrance to the Tengger Arts and Culture Festival (Saturday, August 31st).
