“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” - Christopher McDougall
MS Track & Field
MS Track & Field has had a great season of growth and success in many events and areas. Risk-taking was a big focus at the beginning as we encouraged all students to embrace the program and try their best in both cross country, sprints and field events. Almost 40 Middle Schoolers have taken that challenge and really pushed themselves to try new events like the javelin and test their endurance with early morning runs in Sigiria Forest. ISK Boys won the Rosslyn XC event
International School of Kenya
open with a first and third place finish and over 20 athletes competing. The spirit carried over to St. Andrew’s Turi, where over 20 athletes made the long bus trip upcountry to run 5kms in the highlands to claim an impressive 5th place finish overall. MS Track & Field showed up strong to represent ISK at Peponi Relays held at Kasarani stadium where the competition was fast and fierce. We welcome everyone to attend our culmination performance this Saturday, November 3rd at the U14 ISK meet.
