We are a small Ethiopian business which organises fitness programmes and altitude training 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.

Spending time with us presents an excellent opportunity for self-starters to advance marketing, promotion and web skills with a small business. You can 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 hone IT, design and marketing skills and learn some Amharic.
