Dear All,

After widespread consultations, evaluation and introspection, the Nairobi City Marathon, earlier scheduled for this Sunday, July 7, has been postponed to September 8.

The postponement has been occasioned by unavoidable, external circumstances beyond the control of the organizing committee.

Thousands of athletes who had already registered for the event have further proposed that it be shelved to another date. However, we would also like to appreciate those who genuinely wanted the event to still take place.

We apologize to anyone who had expended resources and time preparing for this marathon and empathize with the inconvenience brought upon you by the sudden change of plans.

We will push full steam ahead and work non-stop to ensure that the marathon is one of the biggest and most memorable events across the globe this year.

This postponement provides us with the opportunity to put in place measures to ensure a bigger and better edition than the previous two.

For interested participants, use this extended period to continue registering for the marathon and training for it. We thank all those who have thus far registered, many of who include foreign athletes.

We believe that the entry of these foreign athletes will go a long way in spicing up the competition and enhance Nairobi City Marathon’s status as one of the world’s most-watched road races.

A big thank you as well as to all stakeholders who have contributed in one way or another towards the success of the previous editions as well as the upcoming one.

Let us continue with the same fervour for the sport and work together towards a glorious event as the countdown to September 8 officially begins now.

God bless you all.
