Maasai warriors once hunted lions … nowadays they’re more apt to be herding cattle. But they still wear scarlet robes and carry spears.

Now a group of 6 Maasai warriors has travelled all the way to London. They hope to raise enough money to provide clean drinking water for their village back home. They’re competing in this weekend’s London marathon.
