Yesterday, Saturday morning at 8 am, it was quite busy on the Sports field in the middle of Soroti Town. There were already many people registered and they were receiving their running number. Of course the fan club of Amecet was also present!!!
We were encouraging our auntie's of Amecet, six of them were running: Sharon, Martha, Barbra, Winnie, Faith and Rebecca (not on the picture). The Marathon was 8 km. long and some of them were running on their slippers.
The Guest of Honor was the Minister of State for Relief and Disaster Ecweru. On this picture he (in the blue) gives the last instructions and on the blow of the whistle, he will lead the group, running from the Sports.
And there they go, as Amecet fan club, we hopped in the car and we drove to a spot where they would pass and we cheered and encouraged them. We were just back when the first runners arrived back on the Sports.
There were some prices made available for the first runners who arrived, the first one was a boy who left quite a while after everybody and arrived as the first! He must be the next Kiprotich!!!!!
