The 19th edition of the Kilimanjaro Marathon will take place on Sunday February 28, 2021.

Taking place under the watchful eye the highest mountain in Africa and highest free standing mountain in the world The Kilimanjaro Marathon (42.2km), Half Marathon (21.1km) and Fun Run (5km). The Kilimanjaro Marathon is an accredited IAAF race, has official time-keeping, marshalling and refreshment points at regular intervals. It also can be used as a qualifier for the Comrades Marathon in South Africa, another of our list of must do Africa running events.


The race has a quite manageable altitude with the entire race being completed between 830m and 1150m above sea-level on good tarred roads. The route passes through many villages, farms, banana and coffee plantations, patches of forest and sections of Moshi town, all surrounded by a great atmosphere provided by the excitement of residents who give ample vocal support throughout! Towards the finishing line the atmosphere in the stadium is electric with local bands playing, entertainment and big crowds, along with plenty of food and drink โ€“ including the famous Kilimanjaro beer of course!

@therunnerphysio Ever found yourself struggling with niggles, fatigue, illness or anything else above? These are some of the signs that you may be over training, particularly if this is coupled with under fueling too ๐Ÿค”
.
Getting the balance right in training can be difficult because to gain improvements in fitness and performance, we need progression and to be challenged. But this canโ€™t be done in every session and we need to incorporate easy sessions too to help get the balance right on our bodies. We also need adequate recovery (rest, sleep and optimal nutrition) in between sessions to ensure we arenโ€™t over doing it and to get the maximum gains from training. 
.
If you have experienced any of these signs, I have put my blog on signs and consequences of over training in my bio, which I hope you find helpful to read.
.
Do you always feel you get the balance right in your training and recovery or have you ever struggled with over training before?
