Incredible 2 Weeks 🇰🇪

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a 2 week running camp but the whole experience absolutely blew me away.

From the runs to the core classes and the introduction to the Kenyan way of life, the whole experience was absolutely incredible.

Thanks to Willy, Richard, Emmanuel, the pacing team and all the staff at the HATC for making the 2 weeks so special.

Running Trips have built something very special and I can’t wait to return next year for more.

Life Changing

The Kenya Experience truly immersed me in one of the most rewarding, uplifting and kind-hearted communities I have ever encountered.

Willy, Robert and Emmanuel are a wonderful team and welcomed us all into their world of hard training, hard eating and hard sleeping – a regiment that is made possible thanks to the outstanding facilities and staff present at the HATC.

The camp brought together people from different cultures and backgrounds, some older some younger, elite athletes and novices, and unified us under the shared love of running and adventure.

Thank you for everything. I am already planning my return !

A truly outstanding package

A truly outstanding package. Friendly and efficient booking and service from the outset. Remarkable value. Fantastic location in terms of running culture, geography and climate. Great facility with gym, pool and healthy food. A well thought out programme combining a varied training schedule, inspirational speakers, coaches and staff and meeting icons of the sport. Easy access to superb physio and good advice. Sunshine, breathtaking scenery atop the escarpment of the Rift Valley. Passion and enthusiasm delivered in a beautiful way, by a wise, experienced and charismatic team.
A privilege to be there, uplifting and, strong words, but an experience that will be life changing for many.
In a good way 🙂

Wonderful Experience

As an older runner with leg issues, I was hesitant about joining the Kenya Experience. But from the start, I was treated with caring, thoughtfulness and given wonderful and personalized attention. From Willie’s reaching out to me to see if I was “OK,” to Peter, my pacer, I felt watched out for and respected. My running mates were also kind, considerate and keep their humor about them. I recommend the Kenya Experience to anyone who wants to take their running to the next level while also experiencing Kenyan Culture first hand!
