Background

Eddah has been a Run-Fast athlete since the end of 2015, after coming to our attention with a strong performance in that year’s Nairobi Marathon, where she ran 2:37.

In 2016 she ran two marathons here in the UK (Edinburgh in May and Bournemouth in October) and won both of them in similar times. She is a proven performer on hilly courses and in challenging conditions.  

She returned to Edinburgh this year and successfully defended her title, crossing the line in 2:37. She is likely to race in a European marathon this autumn.

Eddah lives and trains in Kapsabet south of Eldoret, where she is coached by her husband Chris Tenei, also an athlete.
