Registration for the 2017 Safaricom Marathon is now CLOSED.

There are three race categories: The Full Marathon, Half Marathon and Kids 5km Race. You may also purchase a spectator ticket. 

The course is set on dirt roads that take you on a 13 mile route through the Conservancy — across savannah plains, along river banks and through acacia woodland. Half Marathon runners complete one loop of the course, Full Marathon runners, two. You will be running at an average elevation of 5,500 feet above sea level. Also, Lewa is located 100 miles from the equator so temperatures can reach highs of 90 degrees Fahrenheit year round. The combination of elevation and equatorial sun has proven to test even the most seasoned marathon runners.

We ask that each participant fundraise a minimum of $1,500 to help raise awareness and further the initiatives of Tusk and the marathon beneficiaries.
