The Desert Wheel Race

The Desert Wheel Race is NONDO’s patented annual flagship event in Kenya and beyond that was started in Isiolo County in 2012 with Isiolo County as the only participating county. Last year in its 7th edition twenty-seven counties participated. From 11 participants in 2012 to 78 participants in 2018 (700% growth) the Desert Wheel Race turned out last year as the greatest and unique disability sporting derby in Africa as reported by some international media houses. The race also trended number one on social media (twitter) for four hours under #DesertWheelRace2018.

The Desert wheel Race is about bringing out sporting uniqueness of this Race. Sport is now a significant part of the tourism with sports men/women visiting from countries in Europe, Asia, the US and other parts of the world to train or conduct philanthropic activities. In its 8th edition this year, the Race will not only draw its participants from the traditional 12 nomadic counties other counties will be invited to participate.

NONDO is organizing the 8th Edition of The Desert Wheel and its Build-Up activities (National Disability Conference and The Desert Fashion Gala). The National Disability Conference will be for two days on 10th and 11th October, The Desert Fashion Gala on the evening of 11th October and finally the race will be on 12th October 2019 in Isiolo County.
