The Nairobi City Marathon had earlier been slated for May 21 but was postponed to July 2. The statement acknowledged that there had been a previous event that necessitated the postponement of the awaited marathon reading in part;

We were unaware of a different run happening on the same day across the road. In the true spirit of charity and sportsmanship, we are therefore happy to leave the day for them and push ours forward to allow them to meet their planned charity and community objectives
