This fundraising event for rhino conservation hosts 1,000 runners from over 20 different countries. This marathon is regarded as one of the toughest marathons in the world. However, runners of all abilities take part, from fun runners, walkers and amateurs, to professionals like Paul Tergat the Kenyan international and former world record holder.
The impact of the event has been huge and the benefits are very tangible. Since its inception the event has raised over $4.2 million. The goal is to use wildlife conservation as a catalyst to alleviate poverty, reduce conflict, and improve education and livelihoods in rural areas rich in biodiversity.
There is a half-marathon option as well.
