  • Description

    Description

    We are a small family-run Ethiopia-based group who enable running enthusiasts to train with professional athletes, to discover the country's vibrant running culture, and to immerse themselves in the landscapes and routines which have produced generations of Olympic champions.

    As well as organising training packages for every level of runner, we also run an athletics club in Addis Ababa, and we work to broaden our athletes skills by training them in English, communication skills, massage, handicrafts and tourism.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spending time with us presents an excellent opportunity for self-starters to advance marketing, promotion and other skills in a developing-country context. You can also gain first-hand experience of living and training at altitude alongside the best (if running is of interest to you, but it doesn't have to be), while also mixing with elite athletes, experiencing Ethiopia's rich cultural and social life, and eating fresh healthy Ethiopian food. You can also sharpen your personal training for a particular race goal, hone coaching skills and learn some Amharic.
