”Train with the Champions”

Running Camp Kenya was established in 2011. After coming to Kenya for over 15 years, Mark decided to give enthusiastic runners from all over the world the opportunity to train in Kenya, with the best runners in the world. Helping our guests to develop their skills, build their strength and teach them the techniques of Kenyan running. This was what inspired the startup of Running camps Kenya.

Running camps Kenya has been the official partner of High Altitude Training center Iten, a training center founded by the multiple world champion and World record holder Lornah Kiplagat, since 2011.

Since then we have been organizing effective running camps in Iten, Kenya working with local staff who have years of experience, are runners or former runners themselves and have a very good connection with the local Kenyan running community. Our running camps are effective in preparing recreational or non-elite runners for the hurdles ahead of them and helping or training runners how to maximize their running career and to enhance their level of productivity. The running camps are open for all levels of runners but it is mainly designed for non-elite runners.

During our camps, we host guest from all over the world, individuals that are enthusiastic in seeking for a running experience coupled with an adventure of a lifetime.
