KCB reveals athletic event rewards

12 February 2014, 10:36

Nairobi - Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) will give away a whopping KES12 million to the winner of Saturday's Kenya Commercial Bank/Athletics Kenya national cross-country championships at Uhuru Gardens.

The much anticipated marathon race has already attracted athletes from four other African countries comprising Uganda, Eritrea, South Africa and Ethiopia while Bahrain from the Middle East will also be part of the contest at the weekend.

Organisers have dubbed the marathon race as one of the main races of the 2014 calendar.

KCB Marketing Director, Angela Mwirigi, praised her team for ensuring the event scheduled for Saturday would be a success.

“KCB played and will always play a leading role in the development of talent in the country and beyond,” Mwirigi said.

She said for the past six years, KCB partnered with Athletics Kenya (AK) to champion sports development.

Renowned athletes penciled to grace the marathon race are Ethiopia's duo of Tadelech Bekele Alemu and Gemechu Edeo Kelu, who won the Valencia half marathon last year in 1:08.38 and the Santa Pola half marathon in Spain 1:07.07.

Kenya will not be outdone as its contingent will be strengthened by the presence of athletes drawn from the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), particularly Leonard Olitiptip, who seeks to prove that the soldiers can always achieve big at such high profile races.
