At the start of high school in Kenya, Haron was identified as a standout runner. He joined a school famed for producing high-caliber distance athletes, was voted to the youth national trials championship, and earned an athletic scholarship to Texas Tech University. His professional running career, including sponsorships from two professional shoe brands, has brought him a string of accomplishments in the 10K distance race, steeplechase, and half-marathon events – and he continues his progress with the WCAP.

WCAP has been a game changer for my nutrition, strength training and coaching. It has given me the chance to concentrate on making myself the best I can be in the sport.
