Richard Mukche is one of the best known and best-loved characters in the Iten running scene. He has been an integral and influential part of the Iten running community for the past two decades as an athlete, coach and sports administrator. 

Mukche was an international athlete with a 62minute half marathon personal best, and later in his running career was the chief training partner and pacemaker for Lornah Kiplagat who broke multiple world records during that period. 

Since his retirement from racing Mukche has been involved in elite level coaching as the coach for the Turkish National team during training spells in Iten. As well as coaching both foreign and local athletes in Iten, Richard has also served as the manager of the sports centre at the High Altitude Training Centre, a role which includes organising and coaching the gym program of world-class marathon runners. Richard was subsequently promoted to the role of General Manager of the High Altitude Training Centre in Iten. 

Mukche is a highly respected coach in Iten and has a wealth of experience, advice and stories to share with our guests.
