Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest free standing mountain in the world at 19,340 feet. The views along the 35-mile trail are simply spectacular. It actually happens to be a reasonably priced climb – prices typically range from $1,200 to $1,800. Running the Kilimanjaro Marathon is an adventure in itself –you will be gaining about 26,000 feet in altitude. The next race is on Feb. 26, 2017.
