Introduction: Econet Victoria Falls Marathon.


2023 EVENT.

2 JULY 2023

After a very exciting and successful 2022 event we have begun gearing up for this year’s event to be better than ever!  Developed in conjunction with the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls Marathon is a World Athletics and AIMS (Association of International Marathon and Distance Races) registered event.

The marathon provides a platform for both local and international runners to challenge themselves against the best! The marathon route is varied in terms of terrain, with some incredible scenery and opportunity to see wildlife along the way.  It is well supported by regular water points, all well managed by the sponsors.

A full 42.2km marathon, 21.1km half marathon, 21km half marathon relay (two runners combining 10.5km each to complete a 21km race) and an approximately 7km fun run are all available. The race starts in Vic Falls town, and then crosses over the Vic Falls Bridge, briefly into Zambia, offering the social runner some of the most spectacular scenery in Africa, the route continues along Zambezi Drive through wildlife areas.

Besides the breath-taking landscapes you will encounter on the marathon, there is plenty more to do and see.  Known as the adventure centre of Africa, for good reason, Victoria Falls has a wealth of activities available!

Choose one of the standard travel packages, or tailor-make your own by combining the marathon with a safari or perhaps canoeing, boat cruising, game viewing or even a gorge swing! 

Safaris in neighbouring Botswana and Zambia are also available through Wild Frontiers the official organiser of the Victoria Falls marathon. Wild Frontiers would be happy to furnish you with the details of travel packages in the surrounding region and make all your travel arrangements for you. In addition, there are daily flights from Johannesburg to the Falls, which makes linking from international flights to the region easy.

Please note that more information for the marathon will be posted before entries open in January 2023.
