Virtual Ultra Marathon 2018

About the Virtual Ultra Marathon

This concept was created for people who wish to play a physical part in fundraising for conservation - by taking part in a virtual ultra marathon without having to leave home. The aim is to raise money for For Rangers and Ol Pejeta Conservancy, by running the entire distance between all of Kenya’s rhino conservancies and parks (1,245kms), within a time limit of a year. The distance works out at an average of around 3.4km per day, and can be completed in any ‘medium’ - running, walking, cycling, rowing, cross-training, and so on. Each participant commits to raising a minimum of USD 1,000 over the course of a year.

The funds raised will go towards providing rangers in Kenya with the equipment they need in order to continue the crucial work they do conserving wildlife. By the end of the year, not only will you have contributed to saving wild animals and supported the brave men on the front line of conservation; but you might also be as fit as one of them too.


To support any of the participants, just click on their profile picture and you will be able to donate in their name.
