Team Kenya will embark on final preparations on Monday, at Kigari’s high attitude grounds for this year’s World Cross Country Championships.

The biennial event will be held in Kampala on Sunday.

The 30-member squad took time off on Sunday to reflect on their final touches ahead of their departure for Kampala on Thursday. About 20 runners, among them World Cross Country defending champions Geoffrey Kamworor and Agnes Tirop attended a church service and mingled with students of Kigari Teachers Training College, and promised to defend their titles.

Tirop, who won gold in Guiyang, China is the youngest senior women’s winner having achieved the feat at only 19 years.

Also present were national cross country champion Leonard Barsoton, team deputy captain and 1,500m Olympic champion Faith Chepng’etich, and World 3,000 metres steeplechase champion Hyvin Kiyeng.
