4.2.2. Eric Murimi - Kisumu


About the Contributor

I am an intern student here at KEMRI Kisumu.  I am passionate about running since it makes me strong both physically and mentally.  So far my best performing records are FM 3:06:35; HM 1:25:58; 10KM 38:29; and 5KM 18:01; and 1KM 2:52 which am training hard to improve in order to participate in the Eldoret Marathon in a few weeks’ time.

I am sharnig one of my morning runs where I was so nervous to try a new route from Kondele, my area of residence.  I tried not to think too much into it, and found myself on the way to Mamboleo. Some of my thoughts would be, what will happen to me if I get lost on the sugarcane plantations?


About the Route

From Kondele, take off to the Kisumu-Kakamega Highway and turn East on the road to Mamboleo Junction.  Turn right in Obwolo Junction then aim to see Gita Sub-County Hospital followed by Kindu Primary School and th Kibos River.  Finally use the Kari Road to Kibos Sugar/Kibos Town and back to Kondele.
