The Ngorongoro Marathon is now annual race, first organized in 2008, will take to the road on 19th of April this year with an expected record attendance as the Ngorongoro Marathon has gained stature and recognition and become a hugely popular sporting event. Organized by the Rift Valley Athletics Club and charity organization ZARA the venue is again Karatu on the foot of Ngorongoro, where a half marathon this year is run alongside other shorter events in order to widen the appeal and thus help raise more funds.

The main aim of the sporting gala is the fundraising to help the local community in the fight against malaria, a most noble cause as this tropical disease is a major killer, in particular of infants and young kids, across Africa.
