On September 13rd, 2015, over 1600 runners and 5,000 spectators from over 40 different countries swarmed to the tiny, isolated mountain village of Wonokitri to take part in the first annual Bromo Marathon – racing for the advancement of education in rural Indonesia’s Tengger region.
Tucked in a massif of rugged mountains in East Java’s Tengger region, the 4th Annual Bromo Marathon will be held on September 4, 2016, offering both breathtaking views of beautiful unique landscapes and the opportunity to observe one of Indonesia’s most unique cultures, the Tenggerese. With glowing reviews from both runners and the press, the Bromo Marathon was touted by CNN as one of Asia’s Top Destination Races in 2013.
The 2017 race expects over 2,000 runners and 7,500 spectators as the popularity of long-distance foot racing throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia continues to grow. With such a diverse group of participants gathering at one of Indonesia’s most treasured natural wonders, the Bromo Marathon provides sponsors with a great opportunity to access an engaged, passionate audience through creative and meaningful advertisement that will increase brand equity and awareness.
Furthermore, as the Bromo Marathon operates as a charity event – with a portion of proceeds going directly to the support of local schools and education through the development and advancement of library facilities within the surrounding communities – we provide our sponsors with the opportunity to highlight their social corporate responsibility efforts. Sponsoring an event that promotes good health and education can leave a lasting impression on consumers.
