Charity began at home

I started my coaching career by coaching my wife who could hardly jog for 100m when we started in late 2016. We went from alternating jogging and walking, to running a continuous 30 minutes non-stop, to racing a 10K race in 36 minutes, and on to finish in the top 5 in one of the biggest races in Kenya; the Nairobi Marathon 10K event.

A great coach

He’s a great coach!! Working with Justin Lagat since last summer (2019). Noticed improvement at Sept races! Now he’s helping me get ready for a 200 Km run (fundraiser) and then again for Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon and Canada Army Run.

‘I Improved in 4 months’

Justin Lagat is a very good coach. Improved my speed in 4months by a good 20-30sec/km. He can also run 3min+sec/km at altitude. Don’t you want to be coached by someone who actually runs & has access to Kenyan running family secrets? You will be a faster runner!

‘A pleasure to work with’

I can’t recommend him enough. Justin is a pleasure to work with and helps you in your running journey.
Like all coaching, the Long term is the way to go. Don’t book Justin for only 2 months, you can’t build a house without a fundament. And building that fundament takes the time needed to do so.”
