In Summary
  • Those targeting the Commonwealth Games have to get serious because we have just three months for them to book their tickets for Gold Coast show in April.
  • National Police, Kenya Prisons and counties cross country meetings will be held on the same day, on January 14.

With the Christmas and New Year’s festivities now behind us, it’s time to get down to business and focus on the season ahead.

However, this does not come easy and one has to really toil.

Of course, I know for those seasoned athletes, it’s not the time to start but to continue and take their training to the next level.

However, those targeting the Commonwealth Games have to get serious because we have just three months for them to book their tickets for Gold Coast show in April.

If I may quote the former national athletics team coach Mike Kosgei, cross country running is always key in preparations for track and those headed to Australia should incorporate this in their training.

LOCAL SERIES

This is why I want to urge all athletes aspiring to take part in the Commonwealth Games to be part and parcel of local series that is ongoing.

We all know that Kapswony in Trans Nzoia will be the final in the Athletics Kenya (AK) cross country series this weekend and I would like to see some remarkable difference in terms of the crowd. Next on the line will be the Kenya Defence Forces x-country on January 12 at Moi Air Base, Nairobi, and this is exclusively for the soldiers.

National Police (Ngong Race Course), Kenya Prisons (Uhuru Gardens) and counties cross country meetings will be held on the same day, on January 14.
