The Kenya National Rally championship season will resume next month with the safari rally.
This will be the first time in history, the event will only count towards the Kenya National Rally Championship after falling out of both the World Rally Championship and the African Rally Championship series respectively.
After the end of the KCB Kisumu Rally last weekend attention now shifts to the upcoming Safari Rally which will be the next event in the calendar after it was postponed from its traditional Easter period.
Kenya Motor Sports Club who are the organizers of the event have already kicked off route planning process for the tourney which is slated for June 10th -12th
Meanwhile, the 21st World athletics day was marked Wednesday in Kenya with a kids’ championship being held at the Nyayo national stadium.
Plans are already underway to ensure the kid’s athletics are held countrywide from next year in a move to tap young athletes as Kenya will also be hosting the IAAF world under 18 athletics championships next year at Kasarani.
This was also the first time the day was being celebrated in the country, involving coaches, teachers and parents. Over two hundred primary school children from Nairobi competed in track events, among them 100, 200, 400, 800 meters and walking race and also field events such as long jump.
