THE STORY:

On June 25th, I will be participating in an adventure of a lifetime! I will be finishing a marathon on my third continent, marathon number 26. The race is run on a game reserve and animals will be seen during the race. When running, we will stay on the designated course and only use the official toilets if required. The course will be patrolled at all times and there will be armed rangers located around the course. A helicopter and Supercub light aircraft monitor the movements of the large species during the race.

Inside the Numbers:

Runners = 1,200+ Participating

Countries = 20

Armed Rangers = 140

Spotter Helicopters =3

Rhinos = 137

Giraffes = 182

Zebras = 1,160

Lions = 26

The course is set on dirt roads that take the runners on a 13 mile route through the conservancy — across savannah plains, along river banks and through acacia woodland. Half Marathon runners complete one loop of the course, Full Marathon runners, two. The course lies at an average altitude of 5,500 ft. Temperatures can range from 12-15 Degrees Centigrade in the morning and 30-35 Degrees Centigrade in the afternoon.

There is a minimum fundraising requirement of $1,500 per person due before race day. Please consider to donate to this fundraiser. For each person that donates, I will write your name on my running singlet so that you can join me on this adventurous run!!!
