ACCOMMODATION

The Silver Package (early bird price £645) accommodation is where the majority of our travellers will be staying. You'll be in shared accommodation in two to four person, en-suite rooms with WiFi, a friendly communal cafe area, and plenty of space within the grounds. You get a lot of bang for your buck on this option and enough Tanzanian quirkiness to keep you entertained. 

The Gold Package (early bird price £765) is perfect for those who travel in a bit more comfort and style. With a tough marathon under the African sun we think you'll appreciate the set up at at this hotel - it's one of our favourite places to visit when we are looking to have a special evening.

The Platinum Package (early bird price £895) is for runners looking for something special. With panoramic views of Iringa town, en-suite rooms and private balconies it's a place to relax ready for race day itself!
