This film is an attempt to provide an experiential journey through Kenyan running culture. Kukimbia is Swahili for “running.”

People often wonder what makes Kenyan runners among the best in the world. In March of 2016, we traveled to the highlands of the Kenyan Rift Valley to film and photograph running culture. We stayed in the family homes of some of these athletes, and documented their daily lives as they prepared for international competition.
