On Tuesday, December 15, Kenya’s track and field governing body, Athletics Kenya, marked its 70 years of existence in a colourful ceremony at the Nyayo National Stadium, Nairobi.

The event brought together pioneer administrators and athletes, as well the current crop of runners and sport managers on whose shoulders lie the heavy responsibility of ensuring Kenya’s legacy in the sport lives on.

KELLY AYODI committed the event, bursting with rich history and significance for the future, to pictures.
