Marathon Training in Kenya

Coach Luis Orta travelled to Iten, Kenya early in 2021 to train for a month in the renowned 'Home of Champions'. He was preparing for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and got together a group of talented pacers to help him train and get fit. From his first journey, we created the YouTube Series: Marathon Training in Iten, Kenya, which saw great success and attracted runners worldwide.


The series has now returned with a second and third season, documenting his trip to Africa in March of 2022 and 2023.
