My story

This was never the plan… I honestly thought my long-distance running days were long gone but as part of my ‘initiation’ at Tusk, I once again find myself reaching for the lycra and lacing up my trainers.

Coincidentally, the last time I ran anything more than a 10km fun run, was also to raise funds for conservation but it was 10 years ago! The mythical 90km Comrades Marathon in South Africa was a big day out for me but it wasn’t at altitude, I weighed about 10 kgs less, didn’t have a seriously dodgy knee… and I had many months to train for it, coming off the back of a season racing Ironman. My situation right now is very different and the challenge for me personally is equally as tough, if not tougher!
 
Uniquely, Tusk’s Lewa Safari Marathon is run within a game reserve, alongside rhino, elephant, buffalo and big cats. According to Runners World it’s one of the ten must do run events in the world and I’m taking part on 29th June 2024, to help raise vital funds for Tusk. By doing so, we will be supporting a wide range of conservation projects across Kenya.
 
The Lewa Safari Marathon is in fact a half marathon but it’s at serious altitude, incredibly hot, very hilly and there are no tarmac roads anywhere to be seen!  Amazingly, this is the 25th anniversary year, so participating will no doubt be extra special.

Last year alone Tusk invested over £11.1m in direct conservation activity and more than 10 million people benefitted from Tusk's work. You can keep up with the latest news on social media with #TuskLewaSafariMarathon and visit the website www.lewasafarimarathon.com to find out more.
