Background

Hailing from the Samburu Masai tribe, Loitarakwai joined Run-Fast in 2013.

After training with the team during the summer months he traveled to the UK in October 2013 for his first ever races outside of Kenya. His debut at the Cardiff Half Marathon left no doubt in anyone’s mind that he was in great shape. Averaging 4:44 minute mile pace, Loitarakwai flew into 1st position in 61:50, setting a new course record.

Loitarakwai won the 2015 Great Edinburgh 10 Mile Relay with team-mate Boniface Kongin and also paced the second group of elite men at the 2015 Virgin Money London Marathon.

We believe that this athlete is one to watch and anticipate further success to come on the international circuit.
