When Kiwi marathon runner Daniel Jones left for a training camp in Kenya, he expected to be there for five weeks.
But when the global coronavirus pandemic hit, he was faced with a difficult decision to stay or return to New Zealand.
The 29-year-old opted to stay and make the remote village of Iten his home for almost three months, and now he’s planning to keep it that way for the foreseeable future
“I definitely miss New Zealand,” Jones told Newshub. “I miss my partner in NZ, but in the long term, I think it’s going to be very beneficial for my running and if this helps me put on the New Zealand singlet, then it’s all worth it”
