ATHLETICS: Rwandan first lady Jeanette Kagame and Ndaba Mandela will grace the second edition of Sarah Obama 15 kilometre road race slated for December 6 in Kogelo, Siaya County.
The annual road race which attracted 1,600 participants on its inauguration is expected to have 5,000 runners. Registration starts November 1 with race proceeds to a trust fund set by the Senior Obama to safeguard orphans and widows from the county.
The categories on cards are 15km main race, 10km and 3km fun run. Winners of the main race take home KSH 150000 with the prize money trickling down up to tenth finishers in both men and women races. – JAMES MAGAYI
