KTB also extended an invitation for holiday trips to Kenya for lucky winners through partnerships with Kenya Airways (KQ) and other esteemed entities.

Sports tourism is more than just an adventure; it serves as a global platform to showcase Kenya’s scenic vistas and exceptional heritage. With iconic marathons highlighting the country’s beauty, KTB aims to offer world-class experiences that go beyond ordinary travel. According to UN Tourism, sports tourism is rapidly growing worldwide, accounting for approximately 10% of global tourism expenditure. Projections indicate growth rates of up to 17.5% between 2023 and 2030, positioning KTB at the forefront of promoting Kenya’s prominence while benefiting the nation’s economy.

Welcome to Kenya, where every stride celebrates nature, culture, and the indomitable spirit of human achievement.
