Some of them held an enormous flag with two photos of the killed competitor decorated on the two closures. At the focal point of the white standard, the words 'End Gender viciousness' stuck out. 

Large numbers of the competitors wore red shirts with the late Agnes Tirop's image, while one more gathering was wearing dark. It was a mix of grieving and articulation of outrage 

From Eldoret Hospital where Tirop's body had been lying since Tuesday, the athletes and ladies strolled gradually along the Eldoret-Uganda interstate, singing psalms, prior to joining Oginga Odinga Street and later the Eldoret-Kapsabet-Kisumu street 

Lance champ Julius Yego drove a gathering of competitors who strolled on the sides, as police cleared huge groups that went up to get a brief look at the parade.
