Small Town’s Big Business by Jackie Lebo

In ‘Setting The Pace is a Small Town’s Big Business,’ in the Sports Section, Jackie Lebo argues that the ‘mystique’ of the Kenyan long-distance runner is to be found not among the elite on the European or North American circuits, but among the journeymen whose starting line is a T-junction in a farming community in the northwest of the country.

Here she captures that ‘mystique’ on film.

Jackie Lebo is a journalist and writer based in Nairobi. She is currently at work on a book on the history Kenya’s long distance runners.
