In 2018, ForRangers and Ol Pejeta Conservancy pioneered the first virtual ultra in Kenya. Enlisting participants from all over the world, the marathon was 1,245 kms long and traced a virtual route between Kenya’s rhino parks and conservancies. 31 people took part, and enjoyed receiving information about the wildlife areas as they went from one checkpoint to the next, while maintaining a demanding exercise regime.
I have decided to participate in the ForRangers Ol Pejeta Virtual Ultra Marathon in 2019. My goal is to run and bike my way between Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya and Kruger National Park in South Africa. The Virtual Ultra Marathon raises money for ForRangers, an organization which raises funds and awareness for the rangers in Africa who are battling poaching of the endangered species of the continent. My goal is to run and ride 2755.8 miles in 2019 and to raise money for this important cause.
