We talk about the hills in Iten, but there is a great little stretch of smooth flat ground about 2k out from town which is perfect for fast running
🇰🇪
It’s a normal section of a lot of the main running routes but we are sometimes surprised that more people don’t use it for speedwork.
🇰🇪
Some say they don’t like doing intervals in a straight line and others say the wind is usually strong here so it’s too hard in 1 direction
🇰🇪
It seems that Swiss athlete @julien_wanders and his team weren’t worried about that and used this great little patch of dirt for some sprint training.
🇰🇪
Watch them fly...
