A marathon among the lions

 The 15th annual Safaricom Marathon has taken place at Lewa on Saturday 28th June 2014. Organised by Tusk Trust and supported by Safaricom, this fundraising event hosted 1,000 runners from over 20 different countries. The Safaricom 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. Tusk and Lewa have always shared a common goal to use wildlife conservation as a catalyst to alleviate poverty, reduce conflict, and improve education and livelihoods in rural areas rich in biodiversity.
