Focus shifts to Baringo Half Marathon

28 October 2014, 12:53

Nairobi - Organisers of the Baringo Half Marathon expect more than 2,000 athletes to participate in this weekend's 21km race.

Registration for the race remain open at various centres throughout the area, but race organisers have warned that once registration closes, no late entries will be allowed.

The race will start at Kureschun and the course will take athletes through Kabartonjo, Kabarnet and Ebenezer before reaching the finish line in Kabarnet town.

Apart from the a Sh300,000 first prize, sponsors ABC bank will also award cash prizes to the other top finishers and offer promising athletes a mentorship programme.

"We will have a selection committee to pick deserving athletes and nurture their talent. The selection will not only be limited to the race on Saturday alone, but will be a continuous process that ensures consistency among the runners selected," Organising committee chief Barnabas Kitilit said.

"The reason being that selection based on one event alone may not reflect the true shape of the athletes selected and may also be unfair to those who had one bad race."
