Home of Champions

Confidently written across the archway that marks your entry into the hilly town of Iten is: Welcome to Iten - Home of Champions. Few towns have a motto as true as this one. 

"There are 17 American men in history who have run under 2:10 in the marathon, there were 32 Kalenjin who did it in October of 2011." - David Epstein
