Kenya’s Jumbo Charge family are now mourning the death of co-founder Marvin Wamalwa.
Wamalwa, who has been in-charge of the championships succumbed to a cancerous tumor on Saturday at LifeCare Hospital in Bungoma town while undergoing treatment.
The annual event held during Ester Holidays, did not happen this weekend after President Uhuru Kenyatta postponed all sporting events across the country to avoid the third wave upsurge in the country.
In December 2019, Jumbo Charge was feted at the Magharibi Michezo Awards for its efforts in conservation of Mt Elgon Forest.
The same year, 10-year-old Gitau Munene shocked many when he was crowned the winner of the Jumbo Charge 4×4 Mt Elgon challenge.
This year, the competition was set for October at Kiptogot in Mt Elgon.
