Stanchart Nairobi Marathon - bright future

The Stanchart Kenya office has thrown in more support and says it will continue supporting the capital city's premier marathon. A financial kitty of KShs.350 million (approx US$5.03 million) for the next 5 years is what will prove whether the event will survive to become one of top marathons in Africa and the world too.It is part of the Standard Chartered sponsored 'Greatest Race(s) on Earth together with 3 other marathons held in India, Singapore and Hong Kong.
This year's edition will have the theme is
We have a vision - seeing is believing
and will be held on the 28th of October featuring the traditional five races, full marathon, half marathon, 10km road race, wheel chair race and the 5km family fun run race.
Well the 5th edition is around the corner ! Marathoners touch your feet, warm your legs and prepare for the track....I'm still contemplating which race to go for the 10km road-race or half-marathon(21km). Any suggestions ?
