This is a very popular elite local road race in the Athletics Kenya calendar, featuring extremely promising talented athletes as well as established runners. Indeed, several athletes, who are now conquering the international stage, have participated as special talents are discovered during this race.

The marathon will start from Mogotio Equator and end at the University, meeting the requirements for 21Km. The start-finish points for the Half Marathon have been strategically marked to enable participants to run from the Northern hemisphere to the Southern Hemisphere, hence making it an exciting experience!

The half marathon is well organized to ensure high level of competition from the galaxy of star athletes who hail from the athletics-rich Rift Valley region, led by the race ambassadors who will be determined from time to time by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC). The University will reserve the right of nominating and subsequently appointing the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) to assist in planning and coordinating the event. This year’s race ambassadors will be Mr. Eliud Kipchoge, the current marathon world record holder, Ms. Mary Keitany, the world record holder, women only marathon and Ms. Vivian Cheruiyot, Gold medalist 2018 London Marathon.

The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will be responsible for designing a theme for each edition of the Kabarak University Half marathon. The second edition of Kabarak University Half Marathon will bear the theme “Crossing the equator to support needy students.” Funds raised shall go towards the sponsorship of needy students whom without such support may not realize their dreams.

This event will attract media coverage from all the leading media houses in the print and electronic spectrum, who will ensure our sponsors get publicity and exposure that will merge their involvement in the event.
