The reason why we are doing this challenge.....

We are swapping the flat terrain of home in Essex, for the wild and rocky paths of Northern Kenya, where we shall be running amongst wildlife, within the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. 

On 29th June 2024, Alex and I will be running together (yes, I have persuaded him not to leave me on the track) and trotting through the open plains on a half marathon course (you can do the full one, but there is no way either of us would make it round). 

Why, do you ask, are we doing something so out of character?! Well, we are supporting Tusk - the charity which Alex is Chairman. Now in its 25th year, the fundraising support generated by this marathon, goes towards the vital work that Tusk does across Africa. 

We hope you will support us and if you want to make a donation to Tusk, we would be truly grateful. 

Thank you!

  • Over 40 endangered species benefit from Tusk's projects
