Mororia village in Elgeyo Marakwet County will be live with feast as four time New York City Marathon champion Mary Keitany returns into the country on Thursday.
The three time London marathon champion defeated her compatriot Vivian Cheruiyot on a revenge mission when the latter ousted Keitany during April’s London marathon.
Party organisers have invited family members, neighbours and athletes for feast at Keitany’s home who will return alongside her husband Charles Koech with their two children who had travelled to America for the championships.
Keitany failed to hit four wins in a row after falling to American Shalane Flanagan in 2017 after winning 2014, 2015 and 2016 titles following her 2017 London Marathon victory in all women’s World Record time of 2:17:01.
The reigning Olympic 5,000m champion Cheruiyot defeated the defending champion Flanagan who settled for third in 2:26:20.
