Over 3,000 runners have confirmed participation at the Rock City Marathon, which is set to take place on October 4 in Mwanza.

Mwanza Regional Athletics Association's (MRAA) chairman Silas Lucas said yesterday most of the runners were registering for the five-kilometre fun race.

Lucas expressed his satisfaction with the number of competitors who have so far confirmed participation, lauding Mara for a great response.

"It's amazing to have 250 participants from Mara, I'm quite impressed and hope that the runners from other regions will go on registering,'' he said.

He stressed: "So far the turnout is very encouraging. We're looking forward to having over 10,000 runners in all four categories."
