Yet the most beautiful marathon in the country had again many highlights. An exciting race, really a competition, which was only decided in the final by the winner Marius Kimutai.
The four runners of Axxent ran together in relay form the well-known distance 42,195 km. Especially for this Marathon they had set up a sponsorship campaign, with the ultimate goal that the Fair-grounds Foundation can realize a completely new project on a tea plantation in Sri Lanka. A beautiful sporty way to do something back to the production staff and tea pluckers in Sri Lanka. Already on Friday 7th,they could offer a cheque to the Foundation board in the amount of € 7.592, -.
