The Vic Falls Marathon 2019 returns in its 14th consecutive year to the adventure capital of Africa; Victoria Falls on 7 July 2019. This year’s event provides a platform for both local and international runners to pit themselves against the best, in a race in one of the most remarkable locations in Africa.

Inspired by the Kilimanjaro Marathon in Tanzania, the Vic Falls Marathon has grown from strength to strength since it was first proposed in 2005. From just 300 (predominantly local) runners, the event now attracts people from more than 40 different countries around the world.
