Nandi County will play host to Rift Valley Marathon 2018, one of the most anticipated destination marathons set for March 17.
The marathon, in its 6th edition, will see more global and local participation with the drive to raise funds for well drilling projects to bring clean water and better sanitation to the community.
Rift Valley, Marathon Marketing Director, Sharon Allela, said the marathon, will be an amazing and worthwhile adventure for runners to encounter challenging but absolutely scenic terrains and an opportunity of immersion into the Kalenjin culture and to meet a number of celebrated world champions like Eliud Kipchoge.

In 2012, Run for Life, a Canadian not for profit Organization launched the Rift Valley Marathon, to showcase their grass root programs and to give runners from around the world the chance to run in the Kenyan county known as the Source of Champions.
