In August 2018, for the first time, a multi-stage ultra-marathon took place in Kenya. There were fifty runners in attendance from fourteen different countries and, between race fees and individual sponsorships, over one hundred thousand pounds was raised to be split between Save the Rhino International and For Rangers.
Between that and the greatest marathon runner of all-time, Eliud Kipchoge, turning up to give out medals on the finish line, we could be forgiven for thinking at the time that we’d struggle to ever top that inaugural race.
Cut to the end of 2019 and we’ve learned our lesson. This year we had the same incredible adventure only with even more runners. We took seventy runners with us to race across Kenya this September and, thanks to their amazing efforts, we’ve managed to raise even more money. In total, one hundred and forty-seven thousand pounds was raised.
That means the official total for the two year’s combined is £258,951. Over quarter of a million pounds have gone straight into conservation projects supported by our race partners at Save the Rhino and For Rangers.
