John is a Maasai junior warrior from the Irmoielian Manyatta of Kuku Group Ranch in Southern Kenya, belonging to the age set named Iltuati.Placing in a very competitive second position in the 5000 meter race in the 2014 Maasai Olympics, John was awarded the opportunity to travel to New York to participate in the New York marathon alongside two other Maasai from the Tsavo-Amboseli ecosystem last year!Raised by a single father in Maasai land, John has always demonstrated tremendous perseverance, alongside a competitive nature. This attitude has led him to successfully complete his high school education, not often easily accomplished, with major ambitions to pursue University education to become a teacher.
“I am not only passionate about running very long distances, but keen to continue to share knowledge through teaching to my community, most on the importance of Kenyan history, and environmental conservation!”“I am excited to meet everyone and go to New York again to compete with some of the greatest athletes in the world!”

For the 9th year running, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust will be fielding a team of dedicated supporters and conservationists for the upcoming 2017 TCS New York City Marathon.
As our biggest fundraising event each year, your involvement - whether as a member of the running team or as a passionate supporter - greatly helps us raise the funds necessary to continue our efforts within our globally-recognized community-based model for conservation, health and education in East Africa.
100% of funds raised go directly into our programs.
There are only 15 spots on the MWCT Running Team this year.
Interested in running with us?
Outside of being physically up to the challenge, runners commit to raising a minimum of $5000 for the Trust through event partner CrowdRise.
Not ready to run but want to lend a hand?
Supporters can help us raise funds by joining our CrowdRise event donation page too.
Create a profile and share it easily through social media and email,
encouraging your family, friends and coworkers to donate and help enhance our extensive programs and projects for wildlife, wilderness and community.
