Top athletes will be taking on the Got Matar 10km road race this Saturday in Siaya County.
According to the organisers, this year’s edition will also feature circuit and sprint races. The circuit races include 8km for men while women will take part in a 6km competition. Children and the veterans will compete in a 1km race.
The sprints will include 800m, 400m, 200m and 100m both men and women categories which will be held at Got Matar Primary School.
Athletics Kenya Nyanza North chairman Joseph Ochieng said this year’s competition has attracted a bigger number of athletes as most of them will use it to prepare for the upcoming World Aids Marathon and Safaricom Kisumu City Marathon which will be held in December.
Stars to watch out for include last year’s winner Ezekiel Oduol and runners up Joseph Okello. The duo, both from Siaya, will renew their rivalry as they seek to extend their dominance in road racing in the region.
