This month held the 7th annual Running For Lions community race in Samburu, Kenya.

The race continued the tradition of bringing together members of the local community for a day celebrating lions and raising awareness of conservation. We were thrilled to participate in the event and help support it, now that it is an initiative led directly by the community.

Letupukwa ran the half-marathon, whilst Shivani and Apese ran the women’s race. Watch this clip for details!
