Running with the Kenyans

Discovering the secrets of the fastest people on earth

Sunday Times Sports Book of the Year

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award

Winner - Best New Writer category at the British Sports Book Awards

After years of watching Kenyan athletes win the world´s biggest long-distance races, Runner´s World contributor Adharanand Finn set out to discover what it was that made them so fast - and to see if he could keep up. Packing up his family, he moved to Iten, Kenya, the running capital of the world, and started investigating. Was it running barefoot to school, the food, the altitude, or something else? At the end of his journey he put his research to the test by running his first marathon, across the Kenyan plains.

This edition includes a new chapter covering the 2012 Olympics.

" " "If you want to know the secrets of Kenyan runners, and have a rollicking adventure along the way, join Finn in his fascinating tale of what it is to go stride for stride with the fastest people on Earth."--Neal Bascomb, author of "The Perfect Mile" "An extremely good book . . . If "Born to Run" taught us what to wear (or not to wear) when running, Finn's fascinating "Running with the Kenyans" teaches us how to run. . . . In the tradition of the best sports writing, Finn embedded himself fully in his subject and reveals, for the first time, just how close we are to the holy grail of the sub-two-hour marathon."--Robin Harvie, author of "The Lure of Long Distances" "A beautif
