Lornah Kiplagat's track in Iten

On the 14th day of January 2013, work began on the site of the track that was being constructed by Lornah Kiplagat in Iten, Kenya. 

The field had to be cleared, and all the loose soil excavated and carried out of the site before being replaced by hard subsoil brought from nearby quarries and leveled.

Could Kenya's dominance in the men's 3000m steeplechase end at the 2019 Doha world championships?

Among the burning questions and curiosity on what to expect at the IAAF world championships this year is: Will Kenya’s supremacy in the men’s 3000m steeplechase continue past the Doha championships?

Since the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Conseslus Kipruto has not only been fighting to keep a stellar record in his running career but as well to –single-handedly- keep the Kenyan tradition of dominating the event. He followed that by winning the World Championship title in 2017, the Commonwealth Games title in 2018 and the Continental Cup title. But, with the growing strength in competition and interest from other nations, it remains to be seen how long one man is going to keep Kenya on top.

Kenyan Athlete becomes an online coach!

Kenyan Athlete with fans in Canada
The happenings from 2016 to 2018 have inspired me tremendously to take up the job of helping others improve their fitness levels.

I have voluntarily coached a good number of runners over the last three years who have returned some amazing results in their running achievements. I am deciding to make it official. I have now decided to become an online coach in all matters related to running, especially long distance running. It has always been my passion to provide tips on all the dynamics of training from starting running, mileage loading, different types of speed workouts and when/how to start them, hill workouts, avoiding injury, and preparing a program that takes all these into consideration.
