|Laikipia’s first ever ultra marathon took place earlier this month and was a tremendous success. 46 runners from around the world ran 230kms over five days, carrying all their food and sleeping equipment. It’s an incredibly gruelling challenge, which takes months of training and self discipline on top of the marathon itself, over harsh terrain, at altitude, in equatorial heat. The event was organised by For Rangers, in partnership with Beyond the Ultimate and Save the Rhino International. So far, they’ve raised nearly US$ 120,000 which will go towards improving the welfare of rangers. Olympic medalist Eliud Kipchoge was on hand to award the winner all the competitors with their medals.
