Organised by Capital-Plus International (CPI), an integrated communications firm and sanctioned by the Athletics Tanzania (AT) and the Mwanza Regional Athletics Association of Tanzania (MRAA), is one of the major athletics events in the country.

The event’s coordinator, Zaitun Ituja confirmed yesterday that preparations for the annual event were in top gear.

“Preparations for the third edition of Rock City Marathon are in full swing. Nine regions have so far registered for the race,” she said.

She named the regions as Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Manyara, Mara, Mwanza, Singida, Kagera, Tabora and Shinyanga.

Ituja said the door was still open for other regions wishing to compete in the race. She said the event is also open for individual athletes.
