THE STORY:

Thank you for coming by my TUSK – Safaricom Marathon page.

What am I doing?
Running the 2012 Safaricom Half Marathon. This takes place at the end of June in the Kenya Central Highlands, the home of long-distance running, near equator, at mile-high altitude, in hilly terrain, and right through the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, home to giraffe, elephants, lions and rhinos.

Why am I doing it?
The event combines two of my strong outdoor interests: Watching wildlife in natural habitat, and running. More importantly, it helps TUSK in their efforts to combine the interests of people and wildlife. TUSK currently supports projects across 17 African countries, incl. purchases of vehicles, aircraft, and radio equipment for wildlife protection and management, as well as conservation education and the building of schools, clinics, and water improvement facilities in rural communities living alongside wildlife. This works to protect wildlife, especially endangered species, but also to alleviate poverty. TUSK was established in 1990 in response to black rhino and elephant poaching and is still at the forefront of the fight to stop it. Through their work, TUSK helps improve the chances that future generations can experience the excitement of watching these strong, wild animals in their natural surroundings.
