Featuring author Adharanand Finn plus additional guests - Open to runners of all abilities

Iten is a special place, a small town in the Kenyan highlands where world champion runners can be found limbering up on every street corner. Travel to the “Home of Champions” to re-live the trails and landscapes of the book Running with the Kenyans in the company of its author. As well as Adharanand, the team of guides includes stars from the book, including Godfrey Kiprotich and Japhet Koech.

From the immense beauty of Signore forest, to attempting to keep up with 200 elite Kenyans on the legendary Thursday fartlek, and attempting the famous 21km uphill Fluorspar run, this camp is quite simply two weeks of running heaven.
