It is a stunning course run in the magnificent Lewa Wildlife Conservancy at the base of Mt. Kenya with complete exposure to the local wildlife. Don't Worry, the course is patrolled for the safety of the runners (I hope!!). This Marathon raises funds and awareness of the issues of conservation and education for the local communities with respect to their natural heritage. At 6000 feet elevation and warm temperatures, the course will be challenging but I will persevere!! So please lend your emotional and financial support for this awesome cause. Many thanks to all of you and pictures will follow!! Much love, Maria.
