THE STORY:

'For Rangersis a dedicated group of individuals who run marathons and ultra marathons worldwide to raise money for the welfare of the rangers who risk their lives daily to protect elephants and rhino in Africa. Both of these iconic species are under threat of extinction because of illegal poaching – the demand for rhino horn and elephant ivory is rising and both command high prices in South East Asia. 100 African elephants are slaughtered each day by poachers; and in South Africa, which has by far the largest population of rhino in the world, an estimated 1,215 were killed in 2014 alone.

With the rising prices of ivory and rhino horn, poachers have become ever more determined and motivated, using high caliber assault weapons and sophisticated equipment to operate at night. Often poachers come from an underworld of illegal gunrunners, involved in all facets of gun-crimes including human trafficking, drugs and terrorism.

The rangers who protect rhinos and elephants operate in tough, dangerous conditions, and cover vast areas on foot each day. In order to be effective they need top-quality clothing that is suited to the warm days, cold nights and tough terrain. Running for Rangers raises funds for good quality military clothing and equipment which is not available in large areas of Africa, and organises its importation and distribution.

The cost of equipping and training a single frontline ranger for a year is just over $6,000. This year, Running for Rangers is aiming to raise $600,000 to ensure that 100 armed rangers are adequately equipped with top-quality basic equipment and are trained. The rangers are risking their lives to save these two iconic species and we want to do all we can to help them.
