Our Vision

On September 1st, 2013, over 900 runners and 5,000 spectators from over 30 different countries swarmed to the tiny, isolated mountain village of Wonokitri to take part in the first ever Bromo Marathon – racing for the advancement of education in rural Indonesia’s Tengger region.

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.
