Background

Douglas was a new signing to the team at the end of 2015, and is based on the Run-Fast camp in Iten. He came to our attention after running 2:17 at the Standard Chartered Marathon in Nairobi in 2014, and then 2:16 in the Kilimanjaro Marathon a year later.

Douglas made a big leap forward in the Warsaw Marathon in September 2016 where he not only clocked 2:11 but also managed to finish 2nd, aged just 22. Earlier this year he produced the performance of his life in the Seville Marathon, finishing in 2:09:48. That time lowered his PB by around a minute and a half, and also earned him IAAF Gold Label status, accorded to athletes who run sub-2:10 or faster for the marathon distance.

 

Still only 23 years old, Douglas is performing very well for his age, and should enjoy a very successful marathon career in years to come.
