The 5th annual Safari Run and Race with Kenyans for Global Health will be on Sunday, May 18th, 2014.
This year’s race will begin at the Midtown Sports and Wellness Center, located at 4100 Prospect Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110.
We have a wonderful collaboration with local elite Kenyan runners who run this 8 K race. There will also be a 5 K fun run/walk and 1K kids run.
The Safari Run started with about 80 participants and now has grown to over 300 runners and walkers. Last year each participant received a hand carved giraffe from Kenya. We also had an opening invocation from a local singer Cathy McGill.
This is a unique event with famous runners, Kenyan food, and now hand carved safari animals. Other crafts are also available at the event.
We have had sponsorship from Heart and Sole Shoe Store, Podiatry Associates, Midtown Sports and Wellness, Hello Deli, Monte Carlo Restaurant, Dr. Tim Hansen, Dr. Larry Marrich D.C., and Maria Cassimus CPA.
