4 Deserts, 4 Song Saa Foundation: The Sahara Race

Closed

What's it about?

Support Allen Kerton’s efforts to run the Sahara desert – part of the 4 Deserts Race Series - in support of the sea conservation activities of the Song Saa Foundation.This event aims to contribute € 2500 towards the € 10,200 total

The 4 Deserts Race Series is recognized as one of the world’s toughest endurance race events. The series comprises the Sahara Race (Namibia), Gobi March (China), Atacama Crossing (Chile) and The Last Desert (Antarctica), each race covering 250-kilometers, which the competitor is expected to complete over the course of seven days.

In 2016, friend and Song Saa Ambassador, Allen Keaton, will seek to complete all four of the series races. This 1000-kilometer challenge will be the equivalent of completing 26 marathons.

Allen’s motivation is his support and vision to raise € 2500 per for the Song Saa Foundation, starting with the Sahara Race, which will be held in Namib Desert, Namibia, between the 1 – 7 May. The focus of this race is to raise funds in support of the sea-based activities of the Foundation.

Allen is an experienced ultrarunner, triathlete and mountaineer, but the 1000km desert run will be the biggest endurance challenge that he has faced.

Allen was first introduced to Song Saa Foundation in 2010, through working on the design for the award winning Song Saa Private Island. A shared passion for Cambodia and commitment to sustainable development has resulted in Allen’s continued passionate support of Song Saa Foundation’s work in Cambodia.

The Song Saa Foundation works to promote the health and well being of the sea, land and human environments of the Koh Rong archipelago, in southern Cambodia, protecting some of the last remaining habitat of green turtles, horse shoe crabs and dugong in the lower Mekong region.
