Welcome to Zimbabwe

The Victoria Falls Marathon makes a justifiable claim to being one of the most scenic and extraordinary running events in Africa. A World Heritage Site and commonly accepted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, Victoria Falls produces the world's largest sheet of falling water, and is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls.

The Victoria Falls marathon offers full and half marathons and a 7.5km fun run. It is relatively flat and fast and is well marshaled, with regular cooling down sections and water stations. The route takes in the Victoria Falls Bridge, the Upper Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls National Park.
