With two months to go to the Brasov Running Festival 10K, Mary Keitany has been revealed as the ambassador of this race.

The 10k race, set for 25 September, is the showcase event of the Running Festival that spreads over the weekend in the historic Romanian city of Brasov situated in the Transylvania region.

“I am honoured to be an ambassador for the Brasov Running Festival 10K,” said Keitany, who still holds the women-only marathon world record at 2:17:01, a time she clocked when winning the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017. Only Brigid Kosgei and Paula Radcliffe have run a marathon faster than Keitany, both in mixed gender races.

“I am delighted to be a part of such a high-class event almost exactly one year after I ended my elite running career,” added Mary Keitany. The Kenyan star had announced her retirement on the 22nd of September 2021 due to a back injury, following a career that makes her one of the greatest marathoners in history with a four-time New York and three-time London Marathon wins along with a world half marathon title.

Daniel Santa, the founder and the Race Director of the Brasov Running Festival, is looking forward to welcome Keitany during the last weekend of September. “One of the legendary athletes of the near past will be meeting a next generation of road runners,” said Santa. “The 10k will be a great race with a very competitive field, and I am happy that Mary will be with us to witness what the new stars have to deliver”. The elite field of the Brasov Running Festival 10K is expected to be released in mid-August.

Brasov Running Festival, an annual two-day event, comprises a variety of road races, the longest being the elite 10k scheduled for Sunday, 25 September. Saturday’s races include kids and juniors’ races from 800m to 3k. More information on the event is available at .
