World and Olympics champion Joshua Cheptegei will travel with his family to a race – and eventually holiday – in the Netherlands.

The trip expected to happen three weeks from now, comes after Carol Yeko Kamari introduced him to her family in Cheminy, Kween District.

The athlete organised a social gathering at Kingoo Cottages attended by renowned stars David Rudisha, Geoffrey Kamworor, and Bridget Kosgey.

Veteran superstar Stephen Kiprotich and new kid on the block Jacob Kiplimo as well as female gold medallist Peruth Chemutai were among the guests.

Cheptegei is expected to take part in the seven hills race in Nijmegen in the Netherlands on November 21.

“After the introduction ceremony, I felt it befitting to take them along with me to Netherlands to relax and return home for the Christmas holiday when fresh,” Cheptegei told Daily Monitor.

He added: “My family is very close to me and I think it will even boost my performance knowing my greatest inspiration is in town. I mean, how would I feel being on holiday thereafter after a defeat? God will grant us this win.”

Cheptegei and his team also launched the Joshua Cheptegei Development Foundation, which seeks to use sports to transform the community.
