Mwangi Mukundi clocked 23:50.01 to  win the eighth edition of the Henry Wanyoike Foundation-organised “Hope for the Future Run” 7km road race in Kikuyu Township at the weekend.

Nyahururu-based Mukundi, who was making a comeback after a one-and-a-half-year absence, bagged Sh20,000 for his feat. Abigael Wanjiku from Nakuru, who finished fifth in 2012, won the women’s in 27:22.03 ahead of Lydia Njeri  (28:15.06) and  Mary Mwaniki who clocked  28:44.07.

Sammy Karanja was second in the men’s race after timing 23:55.10, followed by Charles Kemeli in 24:00.00 to pocket Sh15,000 and Sh10,000 respectively.

 “Athletics is the heart of Kenyan sports and by involving the community, we stand to do great things and this is why we are proud to sponsor this run in 2014,” said Erick Achola Head of department Brand Safaricom.
