Henry Sugut, also known as mister Vienna, won this city marathon three times in his career, in 2010, 2012 in a new CR and in 2013. Sugut took up running in school and eventually had a lot of success on the track recording personal bests in the 5,000m and 10,000m of 13:08.90 and 27:51.34 respectively. In 2009 he made his marathon debut in Reims where he took the third place. Henry, who is married and has two young children, runs to earn money for his family and to build a better life than he had as a child. He grew up in Nakuru district, Rongai division, in a village called Visoi. For now, he hasn’t decided yet what he will do after finishing his athletics career but farming is one of the things he has in mind.
