Kenya is home to the greatest marathoners on the planet. On the undulating hills of the Great Rift Valley these great men horn their skills daily. Closer to the Capital of Nairobi, we set out to create a trail that will combine amazing views of the Rift Valley with a formidable altitude and distance challenge. We seek to deliver an Endurance Challenge that will take you out of your comfort. Our trail search led us to the Kikuyu Escarpment, a place with great history and panoramic views of the Rift Valley, Mt. Suswa, Longonot and Lake Naivasha.
