We are inviting runners to take up our ‘Virtual’ Lewa Safari Marathon Challenge to run (or walk) either 5km, 10km, 21km or 42km this June to help raise vital funds for a range of wildlife conservation projects, schools, clinics and community programmes across Kenya.
To fundraise as an individual, please chose the ‘Create your own Team’ option when prompted to do so.
Instigated in August 2000 and organised by Tusk, our marathon attracts participants to compete in an internationally acclaimed event and to run through one of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife conservancies. Regarded as one of the world’s top ten “must do” marathons, runners of all nationalities and abilities take part. The event has become a major sporting and social event in Kenya with individuals and corporate teams enjoying an unforgettable experience running alongside some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife and witnessing first-hand the impact of the funds raised.
For a second year the conservancy, along with the rest of the African continent, faces a recovery from the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic against a backdrop of uncertainty. So our marathon has once again gone virtual.
Since its inception the event, which includes the option to run either a full or half marathon, has raised over $7.5m for projects across Kenya. Tusk urgently need to raise as much as possible to ensure that our frontline conservation, education and community projects are able to continue their critical work. Thank you for your support!
