We are delighted to return to run in one of Africa's most exotic events!  Run through a Maasai community on trail in the remote village of Kimanjo. The Amazing Maasai Marathon and Half-Marathon is a great opportunity to complete your running goals on the continent of Africa and give back to the community!

 

The Amazing Maasai Marathon is the story of friends from around the globe coming together in the name of girls' education in Kenya.  In 2011, ultra-Runners and friends, Molly Fitzpatrick and Sarah Soulie partnered to create the Amazing Maasai Marathon.  To this day the event is dedicated to raising funds for Maasai girls to attend secondary school.

 

Join Marathon Tours on this exciting adventure and educational journey as we safari in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the densest concentration of game anywhere in Kenya, and run through the local Kimanjo community.  Explore the vast landscapes of Africa on our game drives, bush walks, and runs with local Kenyans. 


This trip is limited due to the accessibility of the area and the limited accommodations. Whether you travel with us or not, we hope you will help our Marathon Tours Team raise $4,000 in 2017 on behalf of the Amazing Maasai Girls Project.  By hitting this goal, we will have helped two girls through four years of secondary school!
