THE STORY:

This year - as a lead up to my 32nd birthday the day after the race - I'll be running the Lewa/Tusk Safaricom Half Marathon. It's my first half marathon - but as I train, I want to also raise awareness about wildlife conservation in this beautiful country that I call home. I'll be raising money for Tusk, a dynamic and pioneering organisation with 25 years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa.

Tusk supports more than 50 field projects in 18 African countries that not only work to protect wildlife, but also help to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside the wildlife. As the ever-expanding human population and its demand for more land brings increasing conflict with wildlife, Tusk’s aim is to forge an inextricable link between the preservation of Africa’s natural heritage and the future of its land, culture and people.

The event is run within the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and through some of East Africa’s most beautiful scenery. Mount Kenya lies to the south and there are breathtaking views north towards Samburu and Mount Ololokwe. The heavily protected 61,000 acre conservancy is home to over 100 rhino, herds of elephant and a vast assortment of plains wildlife including giraffe, buffalo, the rare Grevy’s zebra and much more. The marathon invites participants from all over the globe to compete in an internationally acclaimed event while running through one of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife conservancies. Although regarded as one of the toughest marathons in the world, runners of all abilities take part.
