The Paris Marathon was established in 1977, during the beginning of a craze for big city international marathons.
Since then Paris has played host to one of the largest, and most popular, events of its kind in Europe. The run takes place from the “Champs-Élysées” heading towards the “Place de la Concorde” and continuing through the city to finish at “Foch Avenue”,
wildlife, securthe national park and to stimulate, as well as sustain the local economy through its mission of “Tourism for Conservation”.
Meet our runner Rollo Wood!
“It’s been a few years since I first went to Kasanka as a volunteer, but the great memories I took away have not faded. The dedication of the individuals involved is clear to see, and yet there will always be constraints through funding, so I have always thought of a way to raise some funds for the charity. I’m surprising myself now to say that I’ve signed up to run the Paris Marathon on October 18th 2020, I had only run for about 20 minutes in a row before I started training! It’s going to be painful but l know that every step taken will raise much needed funds to support this relatively small organisation and make a huge difference. African wildlife has always played a huge part in my life, and it seems like no surprise that I ended up in the wildlife film industry. It’s organisations like the Kasanka Trust that are on the frontlines ensuring that the local biodiversity remains in tip top shape. Especially in Kasanka National Park where they host the largest mammal migration on earth, google it!! Thank you. Rollo”.
