Stretching from the Lebanon to Mozambique, Africa’s Great Rift Valley is a 6,000-mile crack in the earth’s crust, and much of it is to be found in Kenya, where it has literally cut the country in two. The Valley contains some of the world’s finest lakes, mountains and plains. Learn more.
Virtual challenges? What are they? We select a distance and link to a global location - a virtual route. We select different challenges each month and design a bespoke, limited edition medal. All medals will reflect our challenge selection, are unique, and will be a great addition to your medal collection. Our challenges.
Fun fact: The Battle of Marathon involved a runner called Pheidippides running from Marathon to Athens to deliver news of a Greek victory over an invading Persian army. Lots of people run marathons in places all over the world and dedicate themselves to running a marathon (which is based on the distance from Marathon to Athens). You don't need to be in Marathon, Greece to run one.
Similarly, for our challenges, whether you complete the distance on the treadmill, use your local running route, or walk the distance with friends...we don't mind as long as you cover your distance. We'll send you your awesome 'Great Rift Valley Challenge' medal when you've done it. It's awesome...just like you!
