Edward Norton, MAASAI WARRIORS Trust

Fight club is so 1999. Edward Norton's now forming his own running club.

The 40-year-old Hulkster has announced he's lacing up with three Maasai warriors to run the New York Marathon on Nov. 1 as part of an effort to raise funds and awareness on behalf of a Kenya-based conservation organization.

"We came up with the idea of raising funds by fielding a team of runners because the Maasai are born runners, runners as a matter of culture and heritage," says Norton. "I've never run a marathon before and the difficulty of it is both intimidating and motivating, especially when it's for a cause like this."

Norton, who confirmed earlier this week that he'd guest star on the new ABC show Modern Family, and the tribesmen will lead a team of 30 runners in the 26-mile trek to promote the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, which benefits the Maasai people and the fragile ecosystem they inhabit.

Run, Eddie, run.


You wouldn't like him when he's angry. E! Online takes a look back at Norton's The Incredible Hulk.
