Fellow Ultra Runners!
Registration is now open for The Amazing Maasai Ultra 2011, Kenya's only 100km ultra-marathon and the perfect centrepiece to an African adventure holiday.
This unique community-based event will be held on Thursday 23rd June 2011
and will bring together local Maasai and international runners.
Participants will pass through a number of Maasai villages and across the spectacular open plains, grassy hills and deep valleys of semi-arid, raw African wilderness. The 100km (& accompanying 42km marathon) will be run at an elevation of 1500-2000m.
All proceeds will go to raise money to sponsor the secondary education of local Maasai girls. In fact, the girls themselves will be cheering us on!
During race week (19-25th June), participants will stay at Ol Gaboli lodge right by the Ewaso Nyiro river and will enjoy performances from the local Maasai tribes. Extra activities include: a Maasai Mara safari, camel treks, and a trip to Mount Kenya.
