Kericho Tea Run to be held on 31 March 2012 05/12/2011
In an annual event organized by the Tea Board of Kenya, the Kericho Tea Run will be held on 31 March 2012. For the past two years, the Tea Board has successfully held the marathon in several categories, which include a 21 km half-marathon for professional runners, a 10 km run for non-professionals and a 5 km run for families. The organizers have this year upgraded the marathon to a full international event of 42 km.
It is an exceptional experience where participants run through the well manicured plantations in the west of the Rift Valley. Tea lovers, young and old alike are invited to participate in the upcoming event. More information can be found on the organization's website. Come and promote Kenyan tea as a healthy drink.
