KDF marathon cancelled

22 January 2016, 16:48

Nairobi - The Kenya Defence Forces athletics Secretary Alfred Olenawangas has announced that their cross country championships that was set for the morning has been cancelled.

"We held a meeting yesterday and due to what happened to our colleagues in Somalia, we unanimously resolved to cancel the event," he told the-star.co.ke.

"It was a full executive meeting alongside our coaches and technical staff in charge of formation.

"Instead of hosting the event, we went directly into naming a team of 30 (15 men and 15 women) to represent us at the national championships —set for February 13 at Uhuru Gardens.

"It was not a tricky thing to do in coming up with the team since we have been following our runners at the just concluded Athletics Kenya cross country series and we are certain we have named our best.

"We expect to notify the athletes, most of whom are in training camps in Nyahururu and Ngong of their call up into the team by the end of today (yesterday) and expect them to travel to Nyahururu tomorrow (today) where they will pitch camp."
