Consisting of some of the finest distance runners in the world, The Harmbee Project trains athletes from East Africa and around the globe. The term “Harambee” [har-am-bay] comes from a Swahili word that means “come together”. It’s often used in Kenya to describe the power of a training group. “When we train together, we can accomplish greater feats”. The East Africans often describe this trait as one of the keys to their success.
Formed in 2009 and based in Santa Fe, NM for its high altitude (7000 feet, 2100 meters), good climate and abundance of running terrain, The Harambee Project offers a perfect training environment for elite runners seeking quality training in the United States. In collaboration with top agents, managers and sponsors, athletes are provided with optimal conditions to perform at an elite level. Most of the athletes reside in Santa Fe for the majority of the year, occasionally going home during off seasons. Northern New Mexico is also the perfect base for competing both domestically and internationally.
Our current roster of athletes include road racers, marathoners and track athletes competing at the highest level of the sport. We target high quality, high profile races that enrich athletes’ careers and provide them with a forum to reach their top potential. The racing focus is on quality, not quantity. The training is rigorous, combining both the art and science of coaching.
