Runners participating in the upcoming Bogor Marathon in West Java on Sunday will take the path walked by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and former United States president Barack Obama during the latter’s recent visit to the Bogor State Palace.

“The Bogor Botanical Gardens is set to be the start and finish point of the 2017 Mandiri Bogor Sundown Marathon on Sunday. Participants will cross the tracks passed by Pak Jokowi and Obama when they met,” Bogor Mayor Bima Arya said on Thursday as quoted by Antara news agency.

During his visit to Bogor last month, Obama visited the gardens with Jokowi. After welcoming him at the Palace, Jokowi drove the 44th US president in a golf cart to the Grand Garden Restaurant, located in the Bogor Botanical Gardens, where the two spent about half an hour talking about and enjoying Indonesian food.
