There is going to be an international marathon in Mombasa from 24th March 2007. Kenya is the host and I can imagine all the athletes from the high altitude regions are raring to reclaim and capture the tittle once more, it sure is a must watch!
Why run, if you can take a car with aircon!
LEWA Safaricom marathon
This is the most exciting marathon ever.
The marathon is run on dirt roads, over two 21km loop for the half-marathon- through the Conservancy.
The Safaricom Lewa Marathon kicked off in 2000 with the aim of raising funds for conservation and community projects around Samburu, Isiolo, Laikipia and Meru areas.
Over time, the Safaricom Lewa marathon has gained reputation as one for being one of the ten toughest marathon events in the world. Run on a rough terrain and under harsh climatic conditions, it is an enticing experience which has continued to inspire distance runners and athletic fans alike.
The grueling marathon is also unique in that it is run within a game reserve located at an average altitude of 5,500 feet above sea level.
Yap a game reserve, the lewa has lions, hyenas,elephants, leopards, grevy zebras,wild dogs, buffalos, rhinos and many more animals.
I think this is the most exciting marathon ever.
