NAIROBI, May 19 (Xinhua) -- Kenya will compete at the World Masters Athletics Championships scheduled for September at the coastal city of Malaga, Spain, local organizers announced on Saturday.

Rose Tata-Muya, Masters Athletics Kenya Secretary General, said trials will be held on July 21 and July 22 in Iten, located in the Rift Valley area which is the cradle of Kenyan athletics.

"We require 20,000 U.S. dollars to conduct the trials and a further 130,000 dollars to facilitate Kenya's participation in the biennial world championships," the former 30m hurdles national record holder told Xinhua.

This marks the second time for Kenya to take part in the event that features retired athletes of aged 35 and above for women and 40 and above for men.

During Kenya's debut in the competition held in Perth, Australia in 2016, the country ranked 18th out of 130 competition countries and regions with three gold medals, four silver medals and three bronze medals.
