Iten, Kenya 2022


If running was a country, it would be Kenya, and its Eldorado woul be Iten.

A small village tucked at 2400 meters above sea level in the highlands of the Rift Valley.
Iten is unique in the world for its large number of running champions.


Last February, we spent a few days in this mythical village to make three portraits of amateur runners: Justyna, Lionel and Laurent.

They came for two weeks to discover a unique way of life in the world of running and living their dreams in Iten.
