Kenya - One Nation - Plenty of different Cultures

Did you know that Kenya has no one culture that identifies it? With such diverse regional peoples such as the Swahili along the coast, several pastoralist communities mainly in the North and the different communities in Central and Western regions, having a mutually acceptable cultural identification is difficult.
Our mission is not only to create a sustainable marathon tradition in Kenya but also to educate the people about this truly amazing country!
Read this article and learn about Kenya's variety of tribes and religions.

Interviewing a local Kenyan - The story of Ezekiel Oketch from Iten [Kenya]

We managed to get an interview from Ezekiel Oketch who is currently the Director of the Champions Running Store in Iten (Home of the Champions), Kenya.

Take a few minutes and learn about Ezekiel's life being surrounded by running champions. Iten is a truly athletic town and the Kenya Wildlife Marathon gives you the opportunity to experience this from an amazing athletic point of view.

"Running in Iten for any fun runner is running in the presence of greatness. It will make you appreciate the beauty of nature and why we must protect it." (Oketch, 2015)

Let's go back in history...

Let's do not only talk about the beauty of running. It cannot hurt to go a little bit back in history and discover where this beauty has its origin. This article bases its content in a short run back through time. Back to 490 B.C. when this brave run was more important than ever.

By means of the Kenya Wildlife Marathon,   we also want to celebrate a great deal of this tradition.
