2014 Bromo Half Marathon Course Updates Coming Soon. See Below for a description and maps of our 2013 course.
START TIME: 7:30 AM
CUT OFF TIME: 3:00 PM
The Bromo Half Marathon course covers a distance of 21.097 Kilometers. Starting and ending at the Tenggerese village of Wonokitri, runners follow the same route as the marathon distance course, circling several villages along the Tengger Caldera and finishing back at Wonokitri village after one lap. The course immerses runners in beautiful landscapes, serene temples, and the unique communities of the Tengger along the way.
The course also provides a diversity of terrain with half the route on paved road, and half on dirt trail. Incorporating several hills throughout the run, elevations vary from 1950m to 2400m. We at the Bromo Marathon like a good challenge!
Departing from Wonokitri, runners begin the first stretch of the race off-road, running along the beautiful hills of the Tengger to the small village of Podokoyo where the route meets paved road. Here they continue through the greenery of the hills to the village of Ngawu where lies a beautiful Hindu temple.
Moving out of Ngawu, a gradual climb begins, winding through dirt trails encapsulated by forest. Emerging from the forest, the trail thins out onto the caldera rim offering expansive breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape as they venture through the side peaks of the park. Runners continue along the rim to Dinglik Viewpoint where they again meet paved road as the course climbs for an absolute spectacular view of Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park. Making their way down from Dinglik, runners follow the winding paved streets along the sides of rolling hills back to Wonokitri, marking the half marathon Finish for a total distance of 21.097 km.
