Maasai Marathon & Half-Marathon

 

 

 

MAASAI MARATHON & HALF-MARATHON

AUGUST 8, 2015

 

We are delighted to once again offer an unique opportunity to run in one of Africa's most exotic events. The Amazing Maasai Marathon and Half-Marathon is run through a Maasai community in the remote Kimanjo village in Laikipia. 

 

Maasai Warriors, Paul & Francis, were cast on tv show The Amazing Race, China Rush in the summer of 2010 and soon became friends with fellow contestants the Ultra-Runners Molly & Sarah. They partnered to create the Amazing Maasai Marathon to raise funds to send Maasai girls from their community to secondary school. The Amazing Maasai Marathon is the story of friends from around the globe coming together in the name of girls' education in Kenya.

 

Our itinerary includes a fabulous safari drive in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy which has the densest concentration of game anywhere in Kenya. Daily activities include games drives, a visit to the chimpanzee reserve, and a guided bush walk.

 

After leaving Mount Kenya Safari Club, you will be accommodated at the event's mobile tented camp in tents with three meals each day.


Extended stays are available for further excursions to Masai Mara, or perhaps, a Kilimanjaro climb in Tanzania. How about gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda? We had nine guests experience this unique adventure in 2012. They were astounded!  We highly recommend the extension to the Maasai Mara as August is peak migration season!

 

This trip is very limited due to the accessibility of the area and the limited accommodations. Some fund raising on behalf of the Amazing Maasai Girls Project is requested.
