We have already heard and learned a lot about Kenya. About its diverse culture as well as nature, about its heritage and we also got a personal insight of Ezekiel who enlightened us about life in Kenya, about life amongst undiscovered top athletes, poverty, hope and happiness.
Now, it is the right moment to turn all these words, sentences and stories into pictures. Hence, this blog article is a photo gallery that encompasses several different but breathtaking images of this quaint East African country. It is a little vivid foretaste of what awaits you in October, 2015.

Our mission is not only to create a sustainable marathon tradition in Kenya but also to educate the people about this truly amazing country!
