GC Today - 24 February 2013

Two days after the conclusion of the First Universal Session of the UNEP Governing Council in Nairobi, close to two thousand star athletes, up-and-coming runners, school children, UN staff and members of the diplomatic community participated in the UNEP Half Marathon. Organized in partnership with the Paul Tergat Foundation and Athletics Kenya, the 21-kilometre race celebrated Nairobi as the 'Global Environment Capital' following a decision by the UN General Assembly in December 2012 to grant universal membership to UNEP.

Dickson Chumba, won the men's competition whilst Philes Ongori topped the podium in the women's race. Marathon Word Record Holder Patrick Macau, 3000m world record holder Daniel Komen, and former World 5000m Champion Benjamin Limo, were among the star names to attend the event.
