6th Edition of the Mau-Egerton University Cross Country

In 2019, the Directorate of Marketing and Resource Mobilisation organized the 6th Edition of the Mau-Egerton University Cross Country that was held on 9 February 2019. The main objectives of the Cross Country are to raise funds for the rehabilitation of the Mau ecosystem and rehabilitation of Njoro River and to create environmental awareness.

The 2019 Mau-Egerton University Cross Country was launched in January 2019 and was facilitated by key sponsors such as Athletics Kenya, the Nation Media Group, the Nakuru and Narok County Government, the Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) Group, APA Insurance, the Kenya Forestry Service, and the Kenya Water Towers Agency.

KCB and APA Insurance as well as partners from the local community, i.e. Ndarugu-Eritheia Water Project, Mwigito Community Water Project, and Entiyani Community representatives. APA Insurance and KCB have consistently made contributions not only in terms of money but also in planting tree seedlings at the University Botanic Garden. Brand Ambassadors for the event were David Rudisha, and Faith Chepngetich Kipyegon.

The 2011 Boston Marathon Champion, Caroline Chepkwony, participated and won the ten kilometre senior women race category with a time of 34:25.5. The ten kilometre senior men race category was dominated by Emmanuel Bett and Josphat Bett, who completed the race in position 1 and 2 respectively.
