Script to introduce Film 1 - School Journey in Kenya

Ask the assembly for a show of hands about how they get to school - do they walk, take the bus, arrive by car or perhaps run?

Brother and sister Linet and Moses Masai are Kenyan long distance runners. Moses was born in 1986 and is three years older than Linet. They have a younger brother, Dennis who is also an athlete.

Kenyan journey to school. Duration 3,00

Moses and Linet both specialise in 10,000m (6.2 miles) and have recorded personal bests of 26:49 and 30:26 respectively. Linet is Kenya's star female long distance runner and the current World Champion.

They went to school together in a hilly and remote area of Kenya in the Mount Elgon province near the Ugandan border. Running is a big deal in Kenya and Moses' passion for running started when he was at school. He often ran for an hour and a half to school and back home, setting out at 5am.

In this video Linet and Moses return to their school and tell us about their school run.
