Uasin Gishu sponsored 300 athletes for this year's Kass Marathon.

20161120_115717The County Government of Uasin Gishu sponsored 300 athletes for this year’s Kass Marathon.

The County, which prides that its capital Eldoret is world’s mecca of athletics, continues support the production of world beating stars.

H.E Governor Jackson Mandago graced the race which marked its tenth year organising the high profile race in Eldoret.

The Governor, flanked by his Elgeyo Marakwet and Nandi counterparts H.Es Eng Alex Tolgos and Dr Cleophas Lagat, asked athletes to invest wisely.

The advise comes amid claims from a local athlete who alleges to have been misadvised on finances amounting millions of shillings.

“Each athlete need to invest wisely because the career is like any other profession that comes to an end due to retirement,” H.E Mandago said.

His sentiments were echoed by former Boston Marathon champion Elijah Lagat, who is currently the Member of Parliament for Chesumei.
