Bumper entry for Sotokoto

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 20 -Two thousand five hundred runners have registered for Sunday’s Sotokoto Safari Half marathon.

Race director Robert Ouko said on Thursday that he expects several more applications from Equity Branch branches countrywide.

“We have received word that there are forms lying at several branches (Equity). We will allow the applicants to run but they will be slapped with a time penalty,” said Ouko.

Roads to be used for the marathon’s second edition will be closed from 6 am on Sunday morning.

“Langata Road will be closed all the way from the Magadi junction to the City Centre. Aerodrome road from the Langata roundabout up to the Bunyala roundabout will also be closed off,” said Nairobi Area deputy Traffic commandant Leonard Katana.

“A portion of Uhuru Highway between the Bunyala and Lusaka roundabouts will also be closed but just on one lane,” he added.

The portion between the Nyayo Highrise and the Langata roundabout will also be closed off to traffic.

The 21 km event which starts and finishes at the Uhuru Gardens will also go through the estates of Southlands, Ngei and Akiba.
