If you’re moving to Eldoret, Kenya you need to know that this is the city of champion’s where the best athletes in the world are found.

My city lies at a high altitude area. It also has a lot of athletes who train every morning. It is on a plateau, with a meandering river that further makes the valley greener. We have long and short rainy seasons, and farmers plant maize commercially once a year. It is also an educational city, with one of the oldest Kenyan universities, Moi University, calling it home.

Eldoret town is about 60 Km away from Kitale town and the town is surrounded by many suburbs such as Kipkorgot. It is mainly dominated by the Kalenjin community and has a large number of people who mainly go there to trade agricultural produce. It is also home to Eliud Kipchoge who just broke the world record for running a marathon under two hours.

Eldoret is a small but rapidly growing town, as is any other town under modernization. What I like about here, is the cheap food. There are plenty of farmers so food is mostcheap. It is usually cold most of the year. The one thing I hate about this place, is the high rate of tribalism. apart from that, much of everything else is affordable, thus the affordable living. The people here value their culture. Best thing is, Eldoret has produced close to eighty percent of winning athletes on the world stage.

Eldoret is one of the most industrialized cities in Kenya. Most of the industries therein are agriculture-based. The city is strategically located close to an international airport. Most of the agricultural products from the neighboring farmers are exported overseas. Besides, Eldoret is globally known as the home of athletic champions.

Someone moving to Eldoret should know how to speak the Swahili language or at least the English language. Eldoret city is the land of champions. Here people run to earn money. If you want to come here be prepared to exercise a lot because you will see people running every morning. Tempting right?

Eldoret is a city of champions. This is where the most renown world marathon champions like Eliud Kipchoge come from. It is also largely an agricultural area because of its favorable weather, producing majorly maize, wheat. It is still a small but rapidly growing city, making it very hard for one to get lost.

Eldoret is a small town with many generous people. we have an airport and an airstrip. During weekends most people take their children to Poa Place, it’s a nice place with children’s playground, swimming pool and wild animals i.e., lion, leopard, crocodile, ostrich and more. Business is carried out on a 24 hour basis in this town.

Eldoret is in Rift Valley in Kenya. It’s popular for producing world champion athletes. It is also a food basket for the country. My city has a conducive weather for agricultural businesses.
