Running into the heart of Africa: Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon, Kenya. 23 October 2005
Comparing the map of Africa to a human body – and Africa is where humans came from - Nairobi is located where the heart is. The Kenyan capital is unquestionably the hub of East Africa (though Addis Ababa is a close second). It is also the epicentre of world running talent. Since the days of Kip Keino, Kenyan runners have spilled out onto the world scene, dominating races in all corners of the globe. A bit like their East African ancestors did in the original settlement of the world.
