This is the captivating tale of a legendary tribe that has all but vanished, yet their legacy still echoes throughout Kenya today. Passed down through the ages, the story tells of a powerful King named Sengwer and his two sons, Sirikwa and Mitia. Sirikwa, the elder son, went on to rule over the Great Rift Valley, from Lake Turkana in the north to Lake Eyas in the south, and from the eastern escarpment to the foot of Mount Elgon. They dominated the region until the rise of the Maasai, and ultimately blended into other tribes.
The Sirikwa Classic Cross Country commemorates this tribe, paying homage to the Kalenjin people and their rich cultural heritage that endures to this day.
