Meet Thomas Mbiza and Brighton Jecha, two Gonarezhou National Park rangers who are running the London Marathon this year.

The rangers are fundraising to support Save the Rhino International and the purchasing of equipment for the security team specifically tasked with the safe keeping of the rhino once they are reintroduced into Gonarezhou.

This is the first time that Gonarezhou, are sending a team to run the London Marathon. In a statement the park said “We have selected two young rangers to compete namely, Thomas Mbiza and Brighton Jecha. They have excelled at their anti-poaching duties in the park, and for them this is a once-in-a-life time opportunity. Neither have ever owned a passport or left Zimbabwe - therefore, getting on a plane to the United Kingdom to compete in the world-renowned London Marathon is a major event and adventure. They are both very excited but have no idea what to expect.”
