There are three race categories: The Full Marathon, Half Marathon and Kids 5km Fun Run. 

The course is set on dirt roads that take you on a 21km route through the conservancy — across savannah plains, along river banks and through acacia woodland. Half Marathon runners complete one loop of the course, Full Marathon runners, two. You will be running at an average elevation of 5,500 feet above sea level. Also, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is located approximately 160 Kms from the equator so temperatures can reach highs of 30°C year round. The combination of elevation and equatorial sun has proven to test even the most seasoned marathon runners.
