About your host

I'm a freelance journalist. Raised in the high altitude north rift, Elgeiyo Marakwet County, I have grown with world-renowned athletes. I have seen most world champions transform from humble local athletes to global icons. Elgeiyo Marakwet County is home to almost 80% of long-distance runners and it's here that they train. Am a sports enthusiast and I would like to you to experience how it feels…
