Event Details

On Saturday, August, 30th, join us for the 1st annual Amazing Maasai Global Run! To coincide with Year 4 of the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya, we the ask that you donate a 10km run and show your support for girls education in Kenya. 

It's not just in AMS that we're running! Runners in cities all over the world will be lacing up their running shoes and hitting the road to honor our amazing girls that we are sponsoring through high school.
 

The Amsterdam race will start near the entrance of the Amsterdamse Bos just past the Klimpark Fun Forest entrance at Bosbaanweg 3.  My volunteers and I will be wearing red that day so you will find us at the start so we can check your registration or register you.   The route will be 2 x 5k circles of the park which I will mark that morning in sawdust or flower.  I will do a run briefing at 10am and shortly after we start.  I will time the run and will have prizes for at least the 1st male and 1st female finishers.  I will have water at the start, the 5k mark and at the finish.  After we are complete I will have some snacks and some adult beverages.
 
How it Works:
1) REGISTER: Sign-up here to attend (free entry, donation optional). Commit to going out for a 10km run/walk on August 30th and you'll receive a runner bib number from your City Captain to wear on the day. Yep, we're fancy like that.

2) RUN! Join your team on August 30th, head out for a walk or run in solidarity for Girls' Education. Run knowing you have helped change a young student's life. 

3) SEND US A SELFIE: We need proof of your run/walk! Your City Captain will take a picture of you all running on August 30th wearing your bibs and send it to us directly after. We'll put it on-line and share the global effort!
 
Join us and the global running community in coming together to run in unison for girls education!

Disclaimer:
This is an informal, unorganized fun run for our worldwide running community. Participants can run or walk, either solo or with friends, to show our Amazing Girls in Kenya that the world supports them and believes their education is important. It is NOT a race, so there will be no course markings, race timings/results or insurance etc. Neither the Amazing Maasai Girls Project not Your City Captain are responsible for you, your personal safety, security or health. Your run entirely at will and at your own risk - this is just for fun!

Organizer

The Amazing Maasai Girls Project

The Amazing Maasai Girls Project (AMGP) is a US registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded with the mission of providing secondary school scholarships to Maasai girls in rural Kenya.

The AMGP was established in 2010 by a small group of running friends who believe in the importance of keeping girls in school and out of childhood marriage. Since then, we have raised more than $100,000 thru running-related events and fundraisers and currently sponsors 38 Amazing Girls through four years of high school education.

 

Every year we hold the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya as fundraiser for our scholarship program, as well as other events closer to home, such as the Amazing Maasai Global Run (see below)... Karibu! Join us!
