Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo said that they aspire to establish Borobudur Marathon as the best marathon in Indonesia.
This year the regional financial institution Bank Jateng offers credit to the homestay businesses in Magelang and the surrounding cities, to help them improve their services.
Now in its second year, Borobudur Marathon has become a strong attraction for the tourism industry. “Borobudur Marathon is listed on the Tourism Ministry’s list of 10 important events this year, which is an achievement – for this is not only a sporting event, but it also strives to make an impact on the economy and Magelang society,” said Ninuk Mardiana Pambudi, Kompas editor-in-chief, during the event’s press conference.
This year, the marathon starts inside the Lumbini Park Complex, in Borobudur Temple, Magelang, Central Java. Applicants who have not succeeded in the ballot system can still register via a travel agent appointed by Borobudur Marathon.
