Safaricom Marathon 2018

The 19th Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya
Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Tusk’s Safaricom Marathon and Half Marathon allow participants from all over the globe to compete in an internationally acclaimed event whilst running through one of Africa’s most breathtaking wildlife conservancies. Although regarded as one of the toughest marathons in the world, runners of all abilities take part — from walkers and amateurs to elite runners like Eliud Kipchoge, the reigning Kenyan Olympic Gold Medallist. As a result, this annual Tusk fundraising  event has grown to become one of the country’s major sporting events and is regarded by Runner’s World as one of the world’s top ten “must do” marathons.

“One of the top ten races to run in your life.”

– Runner’s World

Run for a Reason

Across Africa, approximately 70 elephants are killed every day. Illegal poaching claims the life of one rhino every 10 hours. At this rate, these iconic species will be gone from the wild within your lifetime.

Join the 1,400 runners who take part in the Safaricom Marathon every year.  Your part in this event will raise critical funds for conservation, community development and education programs that are providing hope for the future of Africa’s wildlife. 

Together we can make a difference.
