The Astana Marathon 2018 was held on 16 September. This year more than 40 people ran as part of the KPMG team. Participation in marathons is a longstanding tradition of our colleagues. Each participant in a marathon is driven by their own special motivation that enables them to tackle the long distance. A sense of serving the common good is one such motivational factor supporting our marathon runners all the way to the finish line. We are delighted to note that with every passing year the number of KPMG employees participating in sports events keeps increasing. The team spirit of our employees is indeed spellbinding! We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the participants in the run on their victory, for surmounting such an arduous distance means first and foremost a personal victory for every single runner!
