The 2020 Beyond Zero Half Marathon is set to take place on Sunday, March 8, 2020, and will be led by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

As expected, several roads will be affected by the marathon and motorists have been asked to use alternative routes.

Joshua Omukata, the Nairobi County Traffic Commander, said appropriate measures had been put in place to control traffic.

The roads to be affected include; Mombasa, Lusaka, Aerodrome, Bunyala, Haile Selassie, Kenyatta Avenue, University Way and Waiyaki Way.

“We have made the elaborate ways of managing the traffic flow. Motorists coming from Mombasa Road are advised to use the southern bypass, same as those coming from Waiyaki Way. James Gichuru and Jogoo Road will be available for use and those heading towards the JKIA from town should use Jogoo Road,” said Omukata.

The map below shows the route that will be used and the roads that will be temporarily closed.

Proceeds from the event will be used in acquiring resources to bring to focus key challenges facing Kenyans and build strategic partnerships.
