After the successful launch of the event in 2017, the Iron Savannah is back for it’s 3rd edition. The challenge will be returning on 16-17th November to the stunning setting of Maili Tisa, near Namanga, Kenya. We are inviting running enthusiasts to take on a trail run, along with friends and family at the foot of the Black Mountains. Last year over 70 people participated in the run and this year is set to be even BIGGER!
The two-day event invites guests to camp out at the foot of the Black Hills for a relaxed evening of food and traditional entertainment from local Maasai. On Sunday 17th the camp will rise early for a quick breakfast before heading off on either a 5, 10.5 or 21km wild run. The run will take you through remote Maasai villages with breathtaking views of Kilimanjaro and surrounding areas.
This year, we also invite you to take part in an additional challenge! On Saturday morning, we are inviting keen cyclists to participate in a 115km ride along the picturesque route from Kitengela to our camp in Namanga or to meet the cyclist in Bisil and join them for the last 40km ride to camp. You can then choose to relax and enjoy the weekend or, if you’re feeling determined, you can also join other participants in the 5, 10.5 or 21km run.
If you want to challenge yourself to run, or take part in an adventurous cycle ,whilst supporting refugee education in Kenya, then this is the event for you.
Not a runner or a cyclist? Not a problem! There will be entertainment for all the family including nature walks, star gazing, bonfires and games.
