What you need to know:

  • The majority of the competitors and spectators filtered into their campsites on Friday as usual, transforming Lewa’s southern swamp into a hive of activity and anticipation.
  • Lewa usually has restrictions on the types of vehicles permitted within the conservancy, and the lodges are expensive.

It has been 20 years since the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy hosted its first Safaricom Marathon. The inaugural event was a comparatively low key affair, with just 180 runners taking part.
