Nairobi roads to be closed on Saturday for Mater Heart Run




A number of roads will be closed this coming Saturday for the Mater Heart Run.

The exercise is set to take place simultaneously in 10 cities including Nairobi, Mombasa, Machakos and Kisumu.

“…to continually raise money for purpose of funding financially disadvantaged children in desperate need of cardiac surgeries,” a statement on the Mater Kenya reads.

In Nairobi, roads that will be closed for the event that kicks off at 7am Saturday are as follows:



  • Kenyatta Avenue
  • Valley Road
  • Mbagathi Way
  • Lang’ata Road
  • Aerodrome Road
  • Uhuru Highway
  • Parliament Road
  • City Hall Way



The Mater program identifies children with heart ailments, especially those from poor socio-economic background who require assistance.
