Did you know that December 4th is International Cheetah Day? In honor of this day we are teaming up with the Cheetah Conservation Fund for our second annual Save the Cheetah 1M 5K 10K 13.1 26.2. The cheetah can accelerate from a standing start to over 95 km per hour in 3 seconds. The cheetah top speed is around 120 km per hour – by far the fastest land animal in the world, streets ahead of all other wild cats, and the fastest running animal. This fast speed is limited to very short bursts, however, with cheetahs able to sprint at top speed for around 60 seconds only. Fun cheetah fact: Whilst sprinting cheetahs spend more time in the air than on the ground…. so they’re the fastest animal on land, but not actually on the ground too much when sprinting! Let’s race like the cheetahs!
We will be donating 20% of each registration for this race to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, whose holistic conservation strategy is the key to success in saving the cheetah and its ecosystem. CCF works to develop best practices that benefit the entire ecosystem upon which the cheetah depends. CCF’s programs address the concerns for wildlife populations and the human communities that share the landscape.
