Patrick Kipng’eno, the 2016 winner of Ndakaini Half Marathon has had a great season this year.
He has two medals on his account and now he aims for the third as he looks to defend his Stanchart Half Maragon he won last year.
“It has been a good season for me and I want to finish the year on a high by defending the 21km title,” said Kipng’eno who trains at Olengurone Running Club in Nakuru County.
“Ndakaini race is one of the hardest course race and if you can manage it then Stanchart won’t be hilly as this because it’s a flat race,” he said after winning the race.
“I won last year’s Stanchart Nairobi half Marathon with a time of 1:02:42 and you can see the time that I used to win the race here. Its almost 3minutes difference, so expect the time to go down as I aim to defend my title in Nairobi,” he concluded.
Kipnge’eno was closely followed by Robert Kipkemboi who finished second in 1:16.28 and Hosea Macharinyang came third in a time of 1:06.34.
