Start: in the car park opposite the banks and Post Office – 07:15 am
2019 Half Marathon is also on a slightly different route, look out for the signage as you run.
Runners will run downhill and across the iconic Vic Falls bridge, toward the Zambian border. Often, in the early morning, there is a chilly spray from the nearby Falls, and always great views – be careful of people stopping for photos!
Turning on the Zambian side, just before the gate, where you run back across the bridge, then turn right on to Zambezi Drive, along the Zambezi River, and past the Big Tree into the Zambezi National Park. Look out for game – elephant, buffalo and lion are present in this area, as well as kudu, impala etc. There are National Parks’ rangers along the route to keep you safe.
The route returns toward town, via Vic Falls Safari Lodge, and up into the residential area before heading to the finish at the school on the Kazungulu road.
The route will be the same as the Full Marathon, but starts a little bit later at 07:15 am.
