Bromo Marathon 2017
The Bromo Marathon is more than just a race, it’s a total community effort. The Bromo Marathon works alongside community members to provide an event which aims to improve education, health, and economic prosperity throughout the many low-income, low resource communities inhabiting the region.
Furthermore, the Bromo Marathon not only provides participants with a beautiful and challenging course but immerses them in true village life and the unique culture of the Tengger in an effort to promote cross-cultural interaction and peace through understanding.
Tucked in a massif of rugged mountains in East Java, the Tengger highlands are located about 50km east of Malang and 100km southeast of Surabaya. Temperatures typically settle around 21 degrees Celsius (70 F) with a crisp mountain air much unlike Indonesia’s heated lowlands.
