Event Details

Join us for the 2nd annual Amazing Maasai GLOBAL RUN!
To coincide with Year 5 of the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya, we the ask that you DONATE A 10KM RUN on Saturday, August 8th, and show your support for GIRLS EDUCATION in Kenya.

Last year, more than 1,000 runners in cities all over the world laced up their running shoes and hit the road to honor the amazing girls that we sponsor through high school. This year is set to be even BIGGER!

Team Taupo will be led by Leigh Austin, who will be providing your runner bibs (it's an organized run, afterall!) and leading you through a fabulous run (more details to follow for registered runners). 
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 8th and you'll receive a runner bib number from your City Captain to wear on the day. Yep, we're fancy like that.  Please note that online donations are in USD.

2) RUN! Join your team on August 8th, head out for a walk or run in solidarity for Girls' Education. Run knowing you have helped change a young student's life.  Wear a RED top.

3) SEND US A SELFIE: We need proof of your run/walk! Your City Captain will take a picture of you all running 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!
Route: Start in AC Baths Avenue outside the AC Baths & Taupo Events Centre.  Run will take us left into Spa Road, left into Tauhara Road, left in AC Baths Avenue (yes running the triangle for a warm up).  Left back into Spa Road then right into County Avenue.  From here we will run to Huka Falls & return via County Avenue, left into Spa Road and right into AC Baths Avenue.  Finish back at the AC Bath & Taupo Events Centre.

Event Headquarters on the day: Clubroom at the Taupo Events Centre.  Toilets available and you can leave any gear here you wish.  Sports drink available (bring your own water bottle). 
Your City Captain training for an ultra-marathon - Join Leigh for 10km this August!

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!

Please Note: This website is USD so will convert to NZD on your credit card transaction.

The Amazing Maasai Girls Project

The Amazing Maasai Girls Project (AMGP) is a US-registered 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer-run organization. Our mission is to provide high school school scholarships to Maasai girls in rural Kenya, whose families would otherwise have no means to afford the school fees. 

We believe ALL girls deserve the opportunity to learn, to pursue an education, employment and independence. We also believe it's time to END female genital mutilation (FGM) and END childhood marriage in Kenya. Sending girls to secondary school is the very best way to do this in Kenya.

Since 2010 we have raised more than $150,000 and currently sponsor 61 Amazing Girls. Every year we hold the Amazing Maasai Marathon in Kenya and the GLOBAL RUN as fundraisers for our scholarship program. Karibu! Join us!
