The Great Maasai Run is a 10-day adventure taking place in July.


You can choose to take on either the:


The full marathon (26 miles)
The half marathon (13 miles)
The 10km (6.2 miles)


The race can be tough; the terrain is rugged, the temperature will be hot and you will be running at around 1,800m above sea level, so whatever distance you choose you must be prepared for a challenge. 


After having completed the race you will then have the opportunity to visit Dig Deep’s projects, seeing first-hand the life changing impact your fundraising will have.
