The deadline for participants to register for Eldoret City Marathon third edition has been set to April 6, 2021. The third edition is scheduled for April 11, 2021. Unlike previous editions where participants could register up to a day before the marathon, this year's deadline has been strictly set for April 6. The technical committee led by the race director, Moses Tanui, has insisted that the deadline will not be moved even an inch due to logistical concerns caused by the prevailing Covid-19 situation and the transponder chip that will be debuted during the upcoming edition. Registration is ongoing online at www.eldoretcitymarathon.co.ke and at physical registration points at Rupa's Mall and the headquarters of the County Government of Uasin Gishu. Participants can register either for the 42.197KM races for men and women or the 5KM fun race. Registration for both races is KES 1,200 for local athletes and USD 100 for international athletes.
Payment is strictly via Mpesa PayBill No. 4069123. Participants are warned not to be duped to make any payment in cash. Clarifications can be sought via +254 722 929 555 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Female and male winners of the 42.197KM races will be awarded KES 3.5 million each. The top twenty finishers in the 42.197KM races will also be awarded.
