About Nyungwe Marathon
Nyungwe Marathon is unlike other marathons. We don’t give out trophies for first place. We don’t even have bib numbers or timing chips. We keep things simple and focus on the running, the people, and the forest. These are what make this event special.
We invite you to race through Nyungwe National Park, one of the oldest protected rainforests in central Africa and enjoy the fun with friends and family.
