Geothermal Menengai Half-Marathom slated for November

The inaugural Geothermal Menengai Half-Marathon will take place on Sunday, November  11th 2012 in Nakuru County.
The event, which is expected to attract over 5,000 participants, was unveiled on Wednesday by the Geothermal Development Company (GDC) in a Nakuru Hotel.
Speaking at the launch, which was also attended by Athletics Kenya (AK) vice-chairman Jackson Tuwei, GDC’s General Manager Dr. Peter Omenda said that half marathon will be an annual event aimed at identifying and helping local talents break into the international limelight.
The Half-Marathon will start at Maji Matamu Academy in Nakuru’s Bahati area and finish at St Joseph Kirima Secondary School along the slopes of the Menengai Mountain.
Apart from the Half-Marathon, there will be a 10km race, a School race, and a 5km family fun-race.        
The annual Geothermal Menegai Half-Marathon will be a perfect addition to Athletics Kenya Calendar as most of the athletes hail from the Rift Valley.
Registration kicks off immediately.

  1. Hey! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge about geothermal energy. You have an interesting and very informative page. I'll be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Glad to have a chance to drop by and learn additional information about this particular topic from your blog. Keep up the good work!
    In addition to that, I have read an article stating that geothermal electric plants were traditionally built exclusively on the edges of tectonic plates where high temperature geothermal resources are available near the surface. The development of binary cycle power plants and improvements in drilling and extraction technology enable enhanced geothermal systems over a much greater geographical range. Demonstration projects are operational in Landau-Pfalz, Germany, and Soultz-sous-Forêts, France, while an earlier effort in Basel, Switzerland was shut down after it triggered earthquakes. Other demonstration projects are under construction in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America.
    Our equipment is capable of drilling wells in excess of 2500' deep
