Lewa Marathon 2009 : Register : Run

The registration for 2009 Lewa Marathon have officialy opened.

This year’s Lewa marathon will take place on Saturday June 27 at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Samburu District, Kenya

This is a marathon that is ideal to a marathon runner seeking adventure, something different from the norm of road running. It is held inside a wildlife park. I remember last year the start was delayed because a lion had encroached on the route, the stewards had to use an helicopter to send it back. Living up to the official Motto “Run Wild”

The deadline for registration will be on May 15, 2009.

Good Reason why you should register early

The entries are limited to minimise damage on the ecosystem. The marathon has a limit of 750 runners. The organisers have said entries will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

    Hi guys. The marathon is nice. I tried to register but it was too late. What do you guys think. Should we allow unlimited participants. What’s the point of limiting the numbers.

    Somebody help!!

    I am interested in running the Marathon for 2010. I live in the USA and want to know where the exact location is and the date for next year. Also, how many participants are there.
