Since it’s first edition in 2003, the Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon has grown tremendously and has earned recognition from World Athletics and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AMS). Having attracted over 250,000 participants across its 17 editions, it is currently the largest single-day sporting event in Kenya. In 2019 alone, we hosted 17,000 runners and were able to raise over USD 300,000 towards the Future Makers Initiative. Our goal is to raise 50 million USD by 2023 to tackle inequality and promote economic inclusion for our younger generation.Learn More
