Hello! Thank you again very…
Hello!

Thank you again very much for supporting the Safaricom race at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The race course across the 62,000-acre conservancy was beautiful, and it was a rare treat to be on foot rather than in a safari vehicle. At 5,500 feet elevation, the sandy and rocky terrain was difficult with lots of hills (including one hill that lasted for 5 km). I finished the half marathon in 2:27, which is not bad for a mostly casual pace along the way. Overall, it was an interesting cultural experience to be part of a Kenya race with superb Kenyan runners and a diverse and fun crowd of conservation organizations and international visitors. We even got to see a few giraffe in the distance along the way.

Collectively Team Nature raised more than $70,000 in support of wildlife conservation and community well-being in northern Kenya. With The Nature Conservancy’s partners including Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Northern Rangelands Trust, and Tusk Trust, the event likely raised more than $500,000. Final results will be known later this summer.

Here’s a slideshow of Team Nature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOJJoommmPE&feature=youtu.be.

And here’s a short video of news coverage from the race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9MsXrA5AYo&feature=related.

Many thanks again for your generous support!! You're the best.
