Water stations and first aid points are situated every 2.5km around the course. Each water station is equipped with basic first aid to help with minor medical complaints such as blisters. There will be a member of the red cross based at each water station.
A helicopter is on standby to collect any runner who needs urgent medical attention and to take them to the AMREF tent at the finish. Should anyone require further medical treatment, fully equipped planes are on standby evacuation to Nairobi. We highly recommend that you you purchase AMREF medical insurance cover during registration if you do not have any prior medical or evacuation insurance cover. Without prior cover, emergency medical evacuation can cost over $4000, which must be paid BEFORE treatment or flight. In an emergency, if there are issues with payment, this can be life threatening. You can purchase AMREF medical evacuation cover for the event at just Ksh. 1,500 on the online registration form.
There is a Recovery Tent located at the finish for basic medical treatment (and massage) which is available for all runners. The recovery tent is manned by doctors, medics and physiotherapists
There will be a Red Cross ambulance situated in the finish area as well as three ambulances around the course.
