On the 30th of July 2016, Jules and Alex will be running the Amazing Maasai Marathon (AMM) in Kenya!
We are 2 cousins from the same family with a common passion: running and Africa, and we can't wait to beat the beautiful track of the AMM alongside the best runners of the planet: the Kenyans of course!
The 42.2km AMM race is held near the small Maasai town of Kimanjo, Laikipia, at the foothills of Mt Kenya, about 250km north of Nairobi (wtf are they doing?). The AMM is also a hilly and a high altitude race so we expect to suffer a bit along the way, but the amazing scenery should help us get through the journey :)
Since 2010, the race is in support of the Amazing Maasai Girls Project, a non-profit volunteer organization that sponsors the high-school education of girls from Maasai villages nearby the race. The mission of the Project is to help adolescent Maasai girls, empowering them through education to find employment and independence, so we are of course running for them!
Take out that credit card and help us reach our great goal ;)
Please share and see you on the race track!
PS: your donation will go directly to the school fees of a bright Maasai girl (all contributions are US tax-deductible)
