Well supported loop course (about: 2013)|
C. G. from Philadelphia, PA (11/14/13)
6-10 previous marathons
| 1 Mount Kilimanjaro Marathon
This trip delivers on the promises with touches of flare along the way. Marie works incredibly hard for her runners. We had excellent accommodations throughout, didn't have to worry about any details, and no one got sick from food or water. There were also performances and cultural experiences Marie built into the stay that we probably would not have had without her. The climb is with an excellent organization, they get you to the top and support you anyway they can, truly an amazing experience. Then you run a marathon. Two amazing accomplishments in the space of a week, the excitement is high. The run itself is extremely well supported. This past year was a 10K loop, and we we're pretty much tripping over water stations, which was great. The local kids were awesome to run, and enjoy the course with. One adult asked me for money and my shoes while I was running, but I get it, I always felt safe though. There was a van running the loop with food too. All in all, this trip put these two great challenges on a plate for the taking, and at a decent price.
