What's it about?

EVENT DESCRIPTION
The Masai Mara Kenya Marathon is a series of exclusive and exciting events like no other held in Kenya! These events include half and full marathon, 5K and 10K fun runs and walks, challenges, adventures, game drives in the Masai Mara Game Reserve, volunteering with community projects and a family friendly safari expedition like no other! The series of events aim to raise funds for practical projects that promote the cause of education and poverty reduction. These projects are implemented by Mend the Gap UK charity and its partner NGO Perimart International. Participants are welcomed to volunteer and participate in some of these projects during and after the event. Please email info@masaimarakenyamarathon.com for any queries related to the organisation of the event. Please email events@mendthegap.org.uk or events@perimartinternational.org for any queries related to fundraising in the UK or Kenya respectively.
Mend the Gap UK and its local Kenyan NGO partner Perimart International have more than 5 years’ experience of organising door-to-door school trips for 2-3 weeks from UK to Kenya. We also arrange similar visits for families, young, older and elderly people to undertake volunteering schemes in Kenya. For more about us, please visit www.mendthegap.org.uk and www.perimartinternational.org and https://www.facebook.com/mendthegapnow/.
Participants will have opportunities for camping or and glamping and living amongst the Maasai at Perimart Nalepo Marathon Village Camp or staying in exclusive neighbouring camps and hotels ranging from economy backpackers to luxury 3-5 star hotels, camps and lodges.
Event participants may find it cheaper and convenient on average to arrange their travel, board and accommodation with our Tour and Travel sister company Perimart via the event website www.masaimarakenyamarathon.com. Participants will be picked up from and returned to Jomo Kenyan International Airport by Perimart. The travel will be by tour coach, tour van or tour car for onwards travel to Masai Mara by Road or to Wilson Airport to fly to Keekorock Airstrip and thence to Perimart Nalepo Marathon Village Camp, near Ololaimutia Gate, Masai Mara. Please email events@perimart.co.ke for any queries related to transportation in Kenya.
