We are back from another memorable and successful trip to Kenya. Our participants had a great time and completed the Lewa half-marathon with big smiles. We also traveled through several parts of the country, visiting and exploring Nairobi, Lewa, Iten - the running capital of Kenya, Nyahururu (another high altitude area), Kakamega and it's rainforest.
We are so glad to have had this opportunity to show this beautiful, diverse country to more folks.
We will have updated information on future trips up soon!

Before you leave: You can train with our Kimbia - Half-marathon training program. Dr. Nyamora will help you formulate personalized goals and help you build up your endurance no matter what your current fitness level. We will also provide an orientation to Kenya including a brief political history, a few key Swahili phrases, and other important tips on making the most out of your adventure. You may also wish to read books & articles or watch films from our list of recommended resources.
While you’re there: In Nairobi, you will stay in a hotel, lodge or house and enjoy home-cooked meals.
We will spend several days getting acclimated and recovering from jet lag, while also doing some light tours of Nairobi. You will run the marathon in a beautiful game reserve (In June) or the wonderful city of Nairobi (In October), spend a day recovering, and then either travel to Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast for a few days of luxury relaxation at one of our favorite resort hotels, or travel to Iten, the running capital where you will stay in a runners training camp. You’ll return to Nairobi for one more day before flying back home.
When you return: We will meet one more time to share photos and celebrate our adventure. You’ll already be looking forward to your next trip!
