The Safaricom Marathon
The 2019 Safaricom Marathon will take place on Saturday 29th June at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. What began as a comparatively tiny event in the year 2000 has now grown from 180 runners raising US$50,000 to over 1,400 runners in 2018 raising US$ 643,000. To date the marathon has raised over US$ 7 Million for conservation and community development across Kenya. This unique marathon is exceptional in many ways - it combines an unusual fundraising initiative with one of Kenya's greatest sporting passions, running.
