Full marathon racing returns to Indonesia after an absence of two decades with the Bank International Indonesia Bali Marathon to be held on Sunday, April 22, 2012.

The start and finish are at the Bali Safari and Marine Park - a zoo and recreation center in a seaside location some 12 kilometers northeast of Bali’s capital of Denpasar.

Centered on Bali’s new Ida Magus Mantra Highway, the course passes through scenic Balinese countryside, traditional villages and includes a combination of flat roads and rolling hills.

As an added enticement, the race will feature iconic landmarks and Balinese traditional music with traditionally dressed marshals urging the runners on.

The race is being run in three categories of a full marathon (42 kilometer), half marathon (21 kilometer) and a 10-kilometer race.

Registration, which has just opened, has recorded a rush of registrants from around the world, including members of [Marathon Maniac]  - an organization of frequent runners who qualify for membership by participating in multiple events each year. An international grouping, “maniacs” from the U.S.A. and Singapore are traveling to Bali in April with the Singapore member having more than 147 marathons to his credit.

Underlining the enthusiasm for the Bali event, a Singapore Blade Runner will run in Bali on April 22nd, just one week after competing in the Boston Marathon on April 15th.

The race will also welcome a number of top marathoners, including:

Full Marathon

  • Alex Melly (Kenya) whose best time was a second place time of 2:22:46 in the Penang Bridge Marathon on November 21, 2010. Alex's best time tp date 2:20:40.
  • Joseph Mwangi Ngare (Kenya) finished 4th place in the Penang Bridge Marathon with a time of 2:26:26. His personal best was in February at the Hong Kong Marathon with a time of 2:17:30.
  • Margaret Wangui Njuguna (Kenya) won the woman’s division at 3:06:38 in the Penang Bridge Marathon (1st Place) She has a personal best of 2:42 at the Melbourne Marathon.
  • Kari Elliot (Canada) placed 2nd at the Penang Bridge Marathon in November with a time of 3:18:48. Kari is now resident in Indonesia.
