The Jakarta Marathon is one of the seven Special Interest programs sport and recreation tourism which was founded by Mr. Joko Widodo (former Governor of Jakarta Province period 2012-2014) and Mr. Sapta Nirwandar (former Vice Minister of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of The Republic of Indonesia period 2009-2014), to attract global tourists’ interest to visit Jakarta.
Our hope is that the city of Jakarta will be acknowledged as the major sport tourism destination in the world and to become one of the six major cities for the World Marathon Majors event, and creating Jakarta to be a world class city globally.
The sites of historical heritage combined with the grandeur of metropolitan skyscrapers of Jakarta will be the major features of the running track. Since its first inception, the participants had then rapidly risen. This is certainly a positive signal for us. Thanks to the spirit to promote sports tourism capital city of this international standard.
