By BERNARD ROTICHMore by this AuthorThe second edition of the Eldoret City Marathon will be run on Sunday and has attracted hundreds of runners. Defending champion in the men’s category, Elkana Yego, told Nation Sport that he will be seeking back-to-back wins. Yego won in Eldoret last year in a time of 2:12:44 ahead of Phillip Kangogo who finished in 2:12:49 and Brian Kipsang, third in 2:12:50. Themed “Climate Action”, the Eldoret City Marathon is mainly sponsored by the Uasin Gishu County government and has shown steady growth. Each edition organisers hope to plant double the number of trees planted in the previous edition.
