Children’s race (L and R)
Despite the rainy weather, over 300 runners turned up for the 5 cross country races (children, teens, youth, men and women) that were scheduled. More than a hundred volunteers braved the weather to participate in this event all day long. The Kenyan Diaspora, friends of Kenya and Versailles residents were delighted to visit the animation village consisting of eight stands. Among them was the Kenyan Tourism stand, where Kenya Airways and the Kenya Embassy jointly promoted Kenya as a tourist destination, and the Kenyan Food Stand at which the Kenyan Embassy and volunteers from the Kenyan Diaspora and the Versailles community served Kenyan delicacies.
