Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) have partnered with Action Marketing Plus, a 360-marketing agency to showcase Mombasa’s attractions and experiences through running.
This weekend of 5th and 6th, all the roads lead through Nyali beach, Mama Ngina water front, Greenwood Drive, Pirates Beach and Downtown as key highlights during the health run to showcase the beauty of Mombasa city.
According to Younes Iraki, CEO of Action Marketing Plus, people across the world are realizing the importance of wellness and a healthy lifestyle along with a newfound gratitude for the outdoors.
Already, the run has attracted over 700 participants, and according to the organizers, the run is expected to bring together over a thousand runners and fans from within and outside Mombasa

He added, “We are therefore inviting runners, walkers, fitness enthusiasts from all over the country to visit and discover the beauty of Mombasa, to connect with the runners’ community and to have all participants run the city over the weekend”.
