    Hello! I am a Norwegian runner and I have booked a stay at Lornah Kiplagat’s training center in April 2012. I have never been to Kenya before , or to Africa for that matter, and I was wondering if you had the time to answer a few questions. 1, the town Iten: Is it possible to buy groceries there like bread, milk and bottled water? 2, the Kiplagat training center: Is there an internet-connection available for guests? 3, the ride from Eldoret to Iten: I will arrive at about 7pm in the evening. Will it be a problem finding transportation from the airport to the training center at that hour? Best regards, Arne Mjelde Sæther.

  2. Dear Myles,

    I wanted to draw you attention to an event Deveron Arts is organising on March 17th. Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede is interested in slow travel but it would be very difficult for her to walk this way on her own – visa restrictions, time, physical exhaustion, boundaries, dangers. The distance between Addis Ababa, her home town, and Huntly, where she is currently doing her residency is 5850 miles. To portray this distance we need 225 people to walk/run a marathon of 26 miles. The route for the Slow Marathon event on the 17th of March will literally follow the poem: The Ba’Hill, the Battlehill, the Clashmach and the Bin – they form a circle and Huntly lies within. A similar even will take place in Addis on the 18th of March to ‘bring Mihret back’ to her country. Patron of the Slow Marathon is Haile Gebrselassie who will participate in the Marathon in Addis Ababa.
    I would be grateful if you could contact me if you are interested in the event. You can also find more information on our website: http://www.derveron-arts.com.

    Kind regards,

  3. Hi sir,

    My name is Mok and I am from Singapore. I am a national marathoner and
    I hope to qualify for the olympics in 2016. I have a PB of 2:26 at the Gold Coast last year. I plan to keep my medical career on hold to chase the Olympic dream.

    I am keen to go to kenya to train for my first block from July 2013 to November 2013.

    Can you please advise me on how I can arrange for this?

    Thank you very much

    Yours sincerely,
