Annual Kenya Connect 5K Race Series

Kenya Connect hosts an intercontinental race series to support our projects in Wamunyu. We invite you to participate in one or both of the legs of Running on two continents: The Kenya Connect 5K

Wamunyu Kenya Connect 5K

The annual Kenya Connect 5K in Wamunyu will be held October 13, 2018 for students and teachers at our partner schools. Along with running through the hills of Wamunyu, students listen to inspiration speeches and celebrate the importance of reading. Greenlight Planet SunKing has provided prizes to the top runners and the school with the fastest combined team score wins a special trophy. Visitors from the U.S. and Kenya are also welcome to run.

Ellicott City Kenya Connect 5K

St. John’s Episcopal Church is the host of the Maryland Kenya Connect 5k which is scheduled for March 30, 2019. Race registration will open in January. One of the special features of this race is that top runners in all age categories will win a hand-carved medallion from Wamunyu. Interested in being a sponsor? Contact
