Ace Africa Challengers – historical highlights

Team in Green Park post race

Over the past 20 years we have seen hundreds of individuals take part in one of our UK based challenge events, including the Prudential RideLondon, British 10k Run and London Marathon.

Since 2015 over 150 individuals have raised over £400,000 for our programmes in rural Kenya and Tanzania. Whether this is by running a half marathon, taking on the Icelandic Ultra Marathon or climbing the classic Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This is just phenomenal and we want to say a huge thank you to every single person who has endured such extraordinary challenges for Ace. We are truly grateful for your awe-inspiring efforts.

We are excited for what the future holds now that challenge events are very much back on track! For any more information on 2023’s events please contact Liv Jarman on for more information or if you have a space on an upcoming event and want to race-for-ace please do get in touch. Our team can provide you with fundraising page support, racing attire and on-day support!

Ace Africa’s Gala Dinner

Ace Africa 15th Anniversary Gala Dinner

Over the years we have hosted multiple successful gala dinners at some of London’s most sought after venues, showcasing some incredible performances while in the process raising a phenomenal £593,000 for Ace’s programmes in rural East Africa. Most recently we moved away from the traditional black-tie gala dinner and hosted a more intimate 20 year anniversary dinner for just 60 close friends of Ace. We are delighted to share that the evening raised £170,000.

We would like to say a special thank you to all our incredible supporters, not only our wonderful guests who continue to give so generously at these events but also to our auction lot donors, event sponsors and the individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make these spectacular events come to life.

Special thank you to Elystan Street, HG Walter, Phil and Jennie Howard and Tambuzi Flowers, for your most recent support at our 20 year anniversary celebration.

Ace Africa Quiz Nights


Ace Africa’s quiz nights have been a staple event for our long-term supporters and raised thousands for our work in Tanzania and Kenya.

Thank you to everyone who attended, donated prizes and to our incredible team of volunteers who have ran the night seamlessly for so many years.
