Our team is running to help make brighter futures in Tanzania! The Tanzanian Children’s Fund works to ensure that all children and families in the Karatu region of northern Tanzania lead healthy and productive lives and have the opportunity to become positive agents of change for their country. Check out our website for more information about our programs and how we provide a loving home for 97 children.

About the TCF Kilimanjaro Marathon Team:

About the Kilimanjaro Marathon:

Situated south of the equator in Tanzania at 5 895 metres, Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain, and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, and the sheer presence of this huge mountain dominates the entire area. “Kili” as she is affectionately known, is one of those iconic sights every person should see at least once in their lifetime.

Every year, at the end of February/beginning March, a standard 42.2 km marathon, 21.1 km half marathon and 5 km fun run are held in the town of Moshi, in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. This AIMS registered 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 and the IAAF.

Check out this video from last year's marathon to get a taste of the action!
