The  inaugural edition of the KECOSO Peace  half marathon which will be held as part of the 35th edition  of the KECOSO annual games was launched Wednesday  here in Nairobi.

Registration for the marathon which is expected to attract athletes from all over the country started today at all Post offices across the country.

The event which will act as a curtain raiser for the annual Kenya Communications Sports Organisations will be held in Eldoret on the 9th of next month.

Communication Authority of Kenya Wednesday announced 4.7 million sponsorship towards the organization of the half Marathon which will see winners, men and women categories walk away with 250,000 shillings.

The Chairman of KECOSO Mutua Muthusi said Eldoret is now ready to host the games which will bring together public and private communications organizations in the country.

Organizers of the games had threatened to move the games to another town due to the slow pace of renovation work at the Kipchoge stadium.

A total of 11 sports disciplines including Golf, Football, Netball, Volleyball pool and athletics among others will be competed for during the event which will be held  between the 9th and 17th of  next month in Eldoret.
