The Safaricom Marathon
The 2016 Safaricom Marathon will take place on Saturday 25th June at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. What began as a comparatively tiny event in 2000 has now grown from 180 runners raising US$50,000 to over 1,200 runners in 2015 raising US$640,000. To date the marathon has raised over US$5 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.
