On 22 April the largest sporting event in Central Asia took place in Almaty. The 7th Almaty Marathon seeks to contribute to encouraging a healthy lifestyle, and developing Republic-wide charity projects. In all, about 14,000 ran the marathon this year. More than 30 KPMG employees from Almaty, Astana and Bishkek joined the event in the individual run, and two teams ran as part of the Ekiden race. This year the Head of Audit at KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia Ashley Clarke and the Head of MC & RC at KPMG in Kazakhstan and Central Asia Saken Zhumashev for the first time covered the 42 km full-marathon distance. We are proud of our colleagues for their athletic achievements and willingness to support the сharity marathon in Almaty. We wish you success in other sporting events in the future! All funds raised will be invested in the construction of playgrounds.
