This year we are riding far and climbing high and we want you to come along for every step of the way! It is going to be a special one that we call the 500in24 People’s Edition! Why you may ask? Because we love you and we could not do any of this without you. You are integral to our work and every bright light we bring into a young person’s life at a Starehe school is a testament to your generosity.
The Gameplan for the year
What’s in store for 500in24?
For the 500in24 people’s edition, we have made some changes to how we do things. Instead of 500 kilometres (310 miles) in 24 hours, we are splitting the time into 4 days. We are doing this because we want you to join us in your own unique way, like a 500in24, personal edition. You get to challenge yourself alongside us, and have your own fans cheering you on. Here’s what you will need:
From the 17th to
the 26th of August,
The 500in24 team will be with Ian through our first event and we want to turn that time into one huge sports day. Stand in solidarity with Ian as he sweats to educate, by participating in an activity with your friends.
Our first major event, on the 17th August, is going to be a 500km+ ride from the Malaba border to Chogoria at the foot of Mt. Kenya. After that on the 22nd the hike up Mt Kenya will commence. There are other prep hikes and rides in store and your participation is highly encouraged. You can use this challenge as your prepwork to get yourself fit!
