Exploring the iconic nation of Kenya is to open up a world of intrigue. Natural landscapes where jaw-dropping wild animals are protected sit shoulder-to-shoulder with tribes such as the Maasai and Swahili.

The Kenyan capital, Nairobi, is a true runner’s paradise. See monuments to past battles in the city centre or run by one of Africa’s biggest slums. For some respite from the urban hustle and bustle, the enormous, green city park is the place for you. You can even head just outside the city limits and see Africa’s iconic wildlife in Nairobi National Park. Kenya’s conservation efforts have set an inspirational example leading many animals to make an unbelievable comeback in the country.

The jewel in the crown of our running tours in Kenya is, without doubt, the trails of Ngong Hills. Not only is it part of the same valley where humanity began (no biggie), but this is where the world’s top runners go to train. Here, you’ll find yourself side-by-side with the pros, with incredible views over Nairobi.

Kenya and long-distance running go hand in hand, especially the Kalenjin people, who have dominated marathon running for decades. Fitness flows in their veins and their passion is clear in the wide variety of running races in the country. Marathon runners often dream of taking on Nairobi marathon, and there are plenty of trail runs and ultramarathons in Kenya for all kinds of runner.

So why keep your passions for running and exploring separate? Our running tours in Kenya combine the two for an unforgettable sightseeing experience. Your local running guide is ready and waiting to show you the real Kenya.
