Dear Runner,

Imagine running in Kenya with a local Kenyan runner. Imagine being paced by your Kenyan running guide in an international race. Talk to and learn from local runners about running goals, training programs and lifestyle. Complete your experience with a breathtaking safari to witness some of the most beautiful scenery, and majestic animals in the world.

Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon/Half Marathon/10k – October 27th *

Why run in Kenya:

  • Improve your running: your running guide will tailor the high altitude sessions to you, and push you to your ability. Runners of all abilities can do this run
  • Vacation experience unlike any other: your trip to Kenya includes a safari in search of the Big 5, a visit to a local Masai village and breathtaking scenery. Non runner spouses and family members are welcome
  • Directly impact the life of a local runner: each runner from Canada will bring with them a pair of running shoes and run clothes to donate to the running guide. Shoes that fit and clothes that look good enhance the self esteem and sense of pride in the runner. A gratuity to your running guide ($50 USD minimum) will enable them to train and enter another race to improve their ranking and financial stability
  • Kenya is a democratic country and our guides keep a close eye on the normally stable political climate and road conditions, thereby ensuring constant feedback on security concerns


Our mission is to leave you with an experience of a lifetime, an insight into the culture and diversity of the Kenyan people and provide employment for local Kenyans. Let us spoil you. We will show you OUR Kenya.

Cost for this 10 day, once in a lifetime opportunity, excluding international airfare is $2950 per person based on double occupancy.

Limited spots are available. If you are interested in an information session for you or your running group please email me at
