The 3rd edition of the Kip Keino Classic was the first tour in the 11 leg Gold Level meetings for the 2022 World Athletics Continental Tour. This continental tour is held in 10 countries across 4 continents. It comprises gold, silver, and bronze level meetings spanning the globe from February to December.

Nairobi has been awarded gold label classification with the Kenyan tour dubbed ‘Kip Keino Classic’ in honor of Kenya’s trailblazing athlete Kipchoge Keino. The World Athletics Continental Tour aims to create a coherent global tour of the best international one-day meets outside of the Wanda Diamond League and reach across every continental area.

The organizers hope to benchmark all future events on the successful launch of the 2020 Tour. Besides the Kip Keino Classic providing participating partners the opportunity to promote to a global audience, it will also create new avenues for fans to watch our leading athletes, either in person, via broadcast, or live stream across local and international media.

The 4th edition will be held on 13 May 2023 and everyone is invited.
