Roads that will be closed during 2020 Beyond Zero Marathon

By Vincent Kejitan | March 7th 2020

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.

In this year’s edition, participants will select one of the following causes to run for:

  • I will run for zero child deaths
  • I will run for zero maternal deaths
  • I will run for zero FGM
  • I will run for a healthy lifestyle for the elderly
  • I will run for early screening of cancer
  • I will run for inclusion of persons who are differently abled
  • I will run for better nutrition for children
  • I will run for zero child marriages
  • I will run for zero HIV infections
