The Kenyan Embassy wishes to inform all Kenyans in France of the 37th edition of the Paris Marathon that will be held on Sunday 7th April 2013. As you may already know, the record holder is Stanely Biwott who ran a time of 2h05min12sec in April last year.
This year, there are 9 elite athletes registered from Kenya. More than half of the first ten arrivals are usually from Kenya and we often take home at least two of the three medals for the men and a medal for the women.
We are highly encouraging the Kenyan community to come and support our runners and promote Kenya’s visibility during one of the most prestigious marathons in the world. The race starts at 8.45 a.m. at Champs Elysées and the finishing line is on Avenue Foch at approximately 10.00 a.m.
