Watching the great Geoffrey Mutai make the arduous ING New York City Marathon look like a cakewalk may have some people pondering how Kenyans like Mutai do it.

The company Micato Safaris is now offering people the chance to see what it’s like to really run like a Kenyan. For a measly $10,255 a person, you can sign up for their “Elite Running Safari”.

According to an article about the safari posted on Forbes.com, “The [elite running safari] program combines visits to high-performance running camps operated by Nike, Adidas and Fila, a tour of the famed Iten High Altitude Training Center, and plenty of running, including training runs with an elite group of world record holders and Olympians, such as Paul Tergat, who held the NYC record from 2003 until last week.”

So if you aren’t a 2:03 marathoner like Mutai, don’t worry, the program isn’t for elites only.

In fact, it’s geared toward runners of all abilities. Along with Tergat, other hosted athletes include three-time Olympic silver medalist Patrick Sang. Tourists will also have dinner at Olympic Champion Kipchoge Keino’s house.
