Shamil Tanna

Shamil Tanna’s new book and project, Runners of ITEN. Sham has been working on this for the past year alongside the amazing Alice Isaac, Paul Rider and Dan Parker. ⁠

Words from Shamil below on the project-

‘I travelled to Iten, Kenya on the edge of the Great Rift Valley in February 2022, having been delayed a couple of years by the pandemic. My father was born in a nearby town and I’d wanted to do this project for years.’

‘For generations, Kenya’s Kalenjin tribe have passed down a passion for running, turning Iten into a Mecca for elite long distance runners from around the world. The project follows a group of young runners starting out on their journey to becoming a champion.’
