Race info: My running partner, my husband, & I decided to do this race. Race proceeds benefit global health initiatives in Kenya (medical supplies, training, etc). They were collecting used shoes to take to Kenya as well. In addition to a cotton race t-shirt, participants receive hand carved giraffes made in Kenya. Several Kenyan elite runners participate in the event, so it's a chance to run with them (or be left in their dust which is more accurate, ha!). They had two distances available: 5K and 8K. We chose the 8K.
|The giraffes Husband & I received. Nice!|
