MAASAI MARATHON & HALF-MARATHON
AUGUST 30, 2014
We are delighted to offer an unique opportunity to run in one of Africa's most unique 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 creat 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 fabulous safari drives in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy which has the densest consentration of game anywhere in Kenya. Daily activities include games drives, a visit to the chimpanzee reserve, guided bush walks among the game and optional lion tracking.
After leaving Ol Pejeta, you will be accommodated at the event's camp in deluxe tents with three meals each day. Please review the complete itinerary by clicking on the link to the left.
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!
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.
