London landmarks lit up on Tuesday (26th July 2022) night to celebrate the launch of the 2022 Wildlife Ranger Challenge. The iconic sites, selected for their resonance with the mission and values of the Challenge, included Marble Arch, the Science Museum and the South African High Commission in the heart of Trafalgar Square.
The map showcased the incredible number of countries represented in this year’s Wildlife Ranger Challenge, which will see over 100 ranger teams from 15 African countries participate in a multi-million dollar fundraising initiative, culminating in a 21km half marathon on Saturday 17th September.
Race day will coincide with the African Ranger Congress taking place in Kasane, Botswana, at which Tusk and its partners, the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa and NATURAL STATE, intend to bring together delegates to take part in the Challenge, with a view to setting a new Guinness World Record for the fastest half marathon carrying 22kg.
