The just concluded Standard Chartered Bank Nairobi Marathon was on point this time round.

Despite the political instability in the country in the last few months that led to the event’s postponement, the organisers still managed to attracted 20,000 plus runners.

In fact, the number would have been more if it wasn’t for the political tussles currently being experienced in the country.

Numbers aside, the programme was generally smooth with all departments playing their roles to the core.

The vetting of runners and the results were tightly monitored. Unlike in the past where masqueraders have jumped in at certain points, this time there was no room for cheats and those who won had to pound their feet against worthy opposition.

It’s no longer a secret that the Standard Chartered Marathon has become part and parcel of the life of Kenyans, especially Nairobi residents who braved chilly mornings and light showers to parade for the prestigious event.

Apart from the elite athletes, fitness enthusiasts came in numbers to gauge their robustness, strength and endurance.
