BENEFITING: Tusk

EVENT: Tusk Safaricom Marathon 2017

Ian MacKenzie

THE STORY:

So psyched to be attempting this race at over 5000ft elevation, my first half-marathon on my first trip to Africa for such a great cause and with an amazing group of people.  Please support me for elephant perservation, and to flail against the homo sapien devastation of flora and fauna in general. 



here is the info:


Tusk’s 18th annual Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon will take place at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, on Saturday June 24th, 2017. Organized by Tusk and supported by Safaricom, this fundraising event will host 1,000 runners from over 20 different countries. The Safaricom Marathon is regarded as one of the toughest marathons in the world. However, participants of all abilities take part, from recreational runners, walkers and amateurs, to professionals like former world record holder, Paul Tergat.

 

The Safaricom Marathon allows participants from all over the globe to compete in an internationally acclaimed event whilst running through some of Africa’s most breath-taking scenery. As a result, it has developed into one of the country’s major sporting events with a reputation for being one of the ten “must do” marathons in the world.

 

The impact of the event has been huge and the benefits are very tangible. Since its inception the event has raised over $4.2 million for projects across Kenya. Tusk and Lewa have always shared a common goal to use wildlife conservation as a catalyst to alleviate poverty, reduce conflict, and improve education and livelihoods in rural areas rich in biodiversity.
