Join Paula's Equator Relay
On December 24th, 2021, a small group of runners led by British superstar Paula Radcliffe will be joined by Kenyan Olympic stars like the reigning Olympic Champion Emmanuel Korir, to run an 80-kilometre relay from the equator to the site where a groundbreaking ceremony will take place to build a 152 bed public children’s cancer hospital. This will be the first ever children’s cancer hospital in sub-Saharan Africa.
