Run, Kenya, Run

When it comes to sports, Kenya is most known for its runners. Kenyans have won multiple Olympic medals in marathon running, and the IAAF world record holder of 2:02:57 is Dennis Kimetto (at the 2014 Berlin Marathon). The most popular sport in Kenya is football, leaving golf well behind: there are only 35 golf courses in all of Kenya, a country with a population of nearly 50 million people.
