Moshi (Tanzania) - "Kilimanjaro Marathon". Situated south of the equator at 5895 metres, the Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain and the highest free standing mountain in the world (as it is not part of a mountain range). Huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, and the sheer presence of this huge mountain dominates the entire area. Every year, at the end of February / beginning March, a marathon, a half marathon and a 5k fun run will be held in the town of Moshi. This race has been set up to promote the sport in Tanzania, and has the official backing of the Tanzania Tourist Board, the Tanzania Amateur Athletics Association, the IAAF, and is registered with AIMS.
