Cancellation of Lewa Safari Marathon 2024

Press Statement - 26th June 2024

Press Statement

The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and Tusk Trust – the organisers of the annual Lewa Safari Marathon – in consultation and agreement with the lead sponsor, Safaricom, have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Marathon event, originally scheduled for Saturday 29th of June 2024.

This decision has been made in light of the current situation in Kenya. We respect the democratic processes taking place and wish to be sensitive to the matter at hand, thus we have decided to cancel the event.

The Lewa Safari Marathon is a much-anticipated annual event that brings together athletes and conservation enthusiasts from around the world to support wildlife conservation and community development initiatives across Kenya.

We understand the disappointment this news may cause to participants, partners, and supporters who have been looking forward to this unique event.

We are committed to ensuring that the Lewa Safari Marathon returns stronger and better next year.

The new dates in 2025 for the marathon will be announced in due course.
