Train in world's running mecca

Join us for a week in beautiful Iten, Kenya, for the 2023 High Altitude Training Camp. For this camp, we are planning to bring a small group of athletes who wish to live the experience of living and training like Kenyans.

Because our last camp held in March of this year was a total success, we want new runners to live the experience. We gathered 17 athletes from all over the world and spent a week running in Iten and its vicinity, learning from our Kenyan team new ways of training and recovering. We hope this camp will be just as incredible as the previous one, and we are excited to be able to share this experience with you.

Live a one-of-a-kind training experience

Run with us in Iten, Kenya, for a life-changing and unique running experience. Iten is a town located about 30 minute plane ride from the capital Nairobi and is one of the running meccas of the world. Known as the "Home of Champions", it stands out for its beautiful scenery and its powerful running culture.

Unique accommodation where Olympic
runners train

Enjoy your stay at the Lornah High Altitude Training Center (HATC) located in Iten, Kenya, where each athlete will receive a single room accomodation for the week. The center is located in the beautiful countryside of Iten, and has a track nearby, pool, sauna, sports massage, physiotherapist and other perks. The HATC has been the training home of many of the world’s greatest runners, and this is the same location where we've held all of our Running Camps.

Run with your own pacer

The Kenya Camp will be lead by coach Luis Orta, but we will also count with our talented Kenyan pacing team who will be there to teach us during our warm-up and mobility sessions. Each runner in the camp will have his/her own designated Kenyan pacer for the duration of the week, which will also be a great opportunity to learn as much as possible from your pacer.

Discover Kenya with us

Get immersed in the Kenyan countryside with us, as we explore the roads/trails of Iten and its vicinity. For the duration of the camp, we will be doing a total of two running sessions a day. That will include easy/recovery runs, track workouts, stretch and mobility sessions, one medium long run, and one long run. Other camp activities include a Safari trip, a motorcycle tour, a Masai family visit, a school visit, trips to the town local markets, and group lunches and dinners with local food. Please note, all our activities are entirely optional, even the runs!
