Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Mafinga running route, or want to share your favorite Mafinga running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Mafinga is located past Iringa in the southern highlands of Tanzania. Running at all times of the day is possible and quite safe as are all routes. Mornings sometimes need a light pair of gloves, and the worst is a little sweat in the afternoons. For a scenic but tough run, try heading on the loop road (big gravel road) that is at the T-intersection at the beginning of the town in-between 2 gas stations. You can buy water or breads as you need it along this road every 5-10 kilometers in little shops, and the road goes for over 25 miles (all the farther I can see it on maps). Otherwise if you find a path, give it a run. However, watch for bamboo sticks with grass tied around them, as these indicate metal animal traps in the trail by the stick (just go around the stick).
