Peter Gitau, Chairman, Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon Local Organizing Committee said, “This year marks a significant milestone as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of this incredible marathon. Over the past two decades, we have witnessed an amazing journey of growth, and I am honoured to be a part of this celebration. Our
marathon is not just about running; it’s about making a real difference in the lives of those who need it the most.

Standard Chartered partnered with Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK) to ensure the results were credible. Additionally, every participant received a tree seedling to plant at a place of their choice through the marathon’s ‘one tree per runner’ initiative.

All proceeds will be channeled towards the bank’s Futuremakers initiative where the bank is working with disadvantaged young people – especially girls and persons with disabilities to gain new skills and expertise to improve their chances of getting a job or starting their own business. Futuremakers empowers the next generation to learn, earn and grow by focusing on education, employability, and entrepreneurship.
