When it comes to world-class marathon runners, Kenyans are considered the cream of the crop – particularly those from Kenya’s Rift Valley. These athletes have won marathons and have set countless world records. But some of Kenya’s top runners aren’t running for fame and fortune.
For years, Julius Arile and Robert Matanda thrive among the roaming bands of warriors that terrorize the North Kenyan countryside. When both warriors suddenly disappear from the bush, many of their peers assume they are dead or have been arrested. Instead, they trade in their rifles for sneakers in the hopes of making it big as professional marathon runners.
