The Kenya Wildlife Marathon and Half-Marathon will take place on the 3nd of June, 2023. Kenya depicts an absolutely perfect location for this marathon tradition. Join us and combine the majesty of the ancient race with the beauty of Kenya’s natural resources. We offer an all-inclusive package that includes the race, accommodation, meals, transportation, sightseeing and game drives. The itinerary starts on the 1st of June and ends on the 8th of June.
The race course is a trail Run course but with different distances 5K, 10K, half-marathon and full marathon. Join us and combine the majesty of the ancient race with the beauty of Kenya’s natural resources. Encompassing hundreds of acres of grasslands, rocky hills and river-beds, the Lukenya Sanctuary is just that, a slice of natural paradise. Teeming with Zebras, Wildebeests, Giraffes and more, humans remain the distinct minority at this veritably unspoiled reserve. Match this with the reliably beautiful weather Kenya enjoys in lying by the equator, and it becomes quite clear why we chose Lukenya Hills as the setting for our Safari Marathon. Join us as we launch a thrilling new Marathon tradition, combining the majesty of the ancient race with the beauty of Kenya’s natural treasures.

The 42 km course runs across diverse habitats and undulating landscape, crisscrossing through open plain grasslands and forest edge ascending to elevated rock outcrops and descending to woodland. Generally, the route consists of over 5km of single-tracks, and 15km of jeep tracks and 10km murram roads. The toughest section is from 12-15km, which is largely climbing. for most competitors, this run would feel like completing a full marathon on road. So, you cannot afford to be under-prepared. In a nut-shell, there are a few kilometers with loose rock surfaces, few kilometers of very narrow and uneven paths, hundreds of wildebeests/giraffes/zebras, a few hyenas, creek beds to cross, 3 tough climbs to conquer and wet-feet from creek crossing. The sanctuary holds incredible views from the hill tops.
