Virtual Lewa Safari Marathon Challenge 2020
Organised by Tusk and Lewa

RUN WILD TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Wherever we are, every one of us is experiencing the impact of COVID-19.

Across Africa the effects of the virus now threaten the livelihoods of millions of people on the frontline of conservation.  Run Wild with us in our virtual marathon challenge and wherever you are in June you can stand in solidarity with them.

Please join us on a global run or wild walk from your garden, street, or treadmill! Together, we can still all make a real difference.  

This isn’t a race, there isn’t an entry fee and there’s no stop watch. 

“As the world comes together to tackle the impact of the coronavirus, please join me by participating in the Virtual Lewa Safari Marathon. I am very pleased to back Lewa and Tusk in their efforts to raise the much needed funds to protect Kenya’s wildlife and provide vital support for communities and schools across my country in this time of crisis”

– Eliud Kipchoge EGH, Marathon World Record Holder and Lewa Ambassador

Make a Difference

The annual Lewa Safari Marathon has raised more than $7.5 million for frontline conservation, schools and healthcare initiatives across Kenya. The cancellation of this year’s event is a huge loss, but by entering this Virtual Challenge we can make a real difference and provide vital funding to projects protecting endangered species and supporting the livelihoods of rural communities living alongside wildlife.
