Safaricom Lewa Marathon

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.

More Info

There are three race categories; The Full Marathon, Half Marathon and Children’s 5km Race. The course is set on dirt roads that take the runners on a route through the conservancy – across savannah plains, along river banks and through acacia woodland. Half Marathon runners complete one loop of the course (21.1km / 13 miles), Full Marathon runners, two (42.2km / 26 miles).

The entry fee for the Full and Half Marathon is £200 . Your place will only be reserved once full entry fee payment has been received. In addition, there is a minimum fundraising requirement of $2,000 per person. The entry fee for the Kids 5km Race is £70 and for Spectators it is £140. There is no fundraising requirement for children (or spectators), although we encourage everyone to do what they can to raise funds and awareness for the cause. 

You must be 18 or older to enter the Full or Half Marathon. There are two age categories for the Children’s 5km Race – 10 to 13 and 14 to 17 (inclusive).
