- Otora disappearing like a fox into the bushes at the start of his first leg and getting to the end even before any of the cars.
- Samuel Nyingi finishing 6 1/2 minutes before his next competitor who was in second place (astonishing considering its a relay).
- Jael only finding out after the relay had well and truly begun that she was one of the captains.
- Everyone was impressive including Steven Ndichu who in one of his legs clocked an average of 4:14 if i’m not mistaken, having begun conservatively then picked off runners as the K’s wore on.
- Annabel achieving her best performance over 5k’s for the relay (and we know how fast she always is).
- Our global superstar James Waliaula winning yet another leg and producing tears from a supporter of another team.
- Nduku forming a new Swara chant which was infectious and vociferous; Swara, Swara, Swara……….
- The determination and effort visible on Lucy’s face as she stormed to the finish line during one of the legs.
- Nduku giving her all, including her singing. Someone swore that she actually 17.
- James’ captaincy where he was running the final few meters with his team members.
- Ashok’s normal smile and laughter being replaced by a hungry and determined look as he closed in on one of his legs.
- Nduku shedding a tear or two when it was becoming apparent that her dear swaras were finally stamping thier authority in the 1st placed position.
Thanks for a great experience everyone.
