While addressing 2018 Kass marathon winners today in Eldoret during prize giving ceremony, Lemaon said they have considered the request, which will be good for athletes who will be using the race for world marathons.

“Track athletes have been dominating the 10km but now we are introducing the half marathon to provide good training for many budding runners,” said Lemaon.

“We want to have a certified course just like the Kass marathon course is,” he added.

However he warned athletes against doping among athletes that has affected Kenyan runners as some have been banned.
