More on the Kenyafornia project from Adharanand Finn:
Those following the story may be wondering what’s happening with the Kenyan ultra runners who were due to appear at the Lake Sonoma 50 in California this week. Unfortunately we’ve had a few problems; Francis picked up a foot injury and Risper was offered an elite place at the Rome marathon, which she decided to take. But we’re not giving up. We’re working on another 50-mile race later in the year. Everyone who pledged support will be contacted individually, but we hope people will agree to roll the funding over to the next race, probably in California in November. Thank you for your interest and patience.
