Tarah Korir

Tarah Korir (Ba. Exercise Science), KKFC director, first visited Kenya as part of a medical mission trip while attending the University of Louisville, Kentucky, on a track scholarship.  She is a successful track athlete who has represented Canada on many occasions. She earned a Bronze medal in the 5000m at the 2012 Canadian Track & Field Championships and Olympic Trials. She is married to the Hon. Wesley Korir, MP for Cherangany Constituency, Kenya.  Wesley, Tarah and their two children now live in Kenya. Tarah enjoys training in Cherangany – the video below was taken in March 2015 on a long run with Tarah. The music, “Come Walk with Me“, was written by Tarah’s aunt Marion for Wesley and Tarah’s wedding.

Tarah speaks fluent Swahili.  This has allowed her to develop a close relationship with, and earn the respect of many Kenyan people.
