The 2010 African Championships in Athletics was held in Nairobi, Kenya from 28 July to 1 August 2010.

Background[edit]

The African Championships in Athletics were held in Kenya for the first time. Previously two major athletics events have been held in Kenya, namely 1987 All-Africa Games and 2007 IAAF World Cross Country Championships.

Preparations[edit]

The championships were awarded to Kenya at the April 2007 Confederation of African Athletics Congress in Dakar, Senegal. [1]

The event was originally scheduled to be held from April 28 to May 2, 2010, but due to delayed preparations the event was moved forward.[2] The Moi International Sports Centre was initially set to become the host venue,[3] but it was later changed to the smaller Nyayo Stadium.[4]
