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 Stone Town running route, or want to share your favorite Stone Town running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Possibility of training on the marathon race track, along the coconut fringed coastline, from west (Stone Town, the capital) to east coast (Kiwengwa) crossing over the island. A little bit of traffic in Stone Town, not at all outside (except for bikes, the means of transport for Zanzibar people). The best course for runners is: Stone Town (Zanzibar harbour), Mtoni, Beit El Ras, Chuini (about 20k), Mahonda, Kinyasini, Kiwengwa (about 42k). It is strictly recommended to run early in the morning because of the high air temperature and the humidity, or late in the evening, but remember that the sunset is around 5 pm. If you run or drive, take the left (as in England).
