A unique opportunity
An incredible UNESCO Heritage Island

Running Camp


International Kenyan Coach and Athlete

Come and run with us on a unique and incredible island with over 100 tracks & trails dedicated to running in the company of TIMOTHY KIPKORIR LIMO, a Kenyan professional athlete and one of the most famous coach at the HATC (High Altitude Trainign Center) in Iten | Kenya.

A unique and unforgettable experience: a week of running immersed in the volcanoes of the island of Lanzarote, between beaches, cliffs and canyons running in a breathtaking landscape declared by the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve


Timo Limo is one of the most well known characters in Iten, the worldly famous “Home of Champions” based at 2.400m of altitude in the highlands of the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, the country where all the best runners on earth were born.

Timo, cousin of an Olympic medalist, is first of all a professional élite athlete specialized in fast 
middle-distance running, particularly 800m. Over the last few years he has also proved to have great talent in coaching, as being a specialist of running technique, running form and running posture.

As a qualified coach, Timo Limo decided to found his company “The Heart of Kenyan Running” in 2018 to share the best of his great experience both as an athlete and as a coach, runners and young talents from all over the world.

The goal of his personal project is to identify and cultivate new talent in running and welcoming a group of foreign runners in Kenya: Timo guides people from different countries and continents in a unique experience to reveal to them what it means to be and run as a Kenyan

As co-founder and director of The Heart of Kenyan Running in Iten, Timo is the one who really drives the running fields hosted at the Iten High Altitude Training Center. He carefully supervises all the details of the activities of our camps and coordinates all the local staff members to ensure that each of our guests can get the most out of their experience with us.

As Head Coach, Timo supervises the training program of our fields and plans all the specific sessions on the track and in the gym, as an essential part of our guests’ training. Thanks to Timo’s high level as a professional coach, we can make sure that runners of all levels will experience an exceptional improvement in their running technique at the end of their stay.

How a Training Camp works

Our Training Camps are designed to adapt to the needs of all participants, for the most part these are not Camps for Sports professionals but for “amateurs” who want to improve their athletic level and live a special experience between sport and vacation . Those who participate in a Camp do not participate in a race but instead want to improve themselves and acquire new potential.


Most of our Training Camps are suitable for all levels and specifically designed for those who want to improve themselves or start practicing Sport. The Camps are divided into groups based on the level of athletic preparation and the experience of each participant.


In addition to the participating athletes, any accompanying persons may also participate, such as your family, your girlfriend, your wife, and even children. In this case, those who do not participate will enjoy a week's holiday by paying a reduced fee!


Our Training Camps are designed to also be a holiday and to give those who participate to discover the island and relax in the sun. After training in the morning, the afternoon remains free and there are no activities until at least late afternoon and the evening is free!
