Starting Line 26th April – and the winner is…

It seems when you set a Swara a challenge they rise to the challenge! We had some amazing entries for week 1 of our Swara PB challenge. We had cross-county runs, speed sessions, and even some mountain climbs, and each of them was equally as amazing and deserving as the other! Our very fair and very handsome judges, Greg and Ameet, pulled a random entry out of the hat, and the winner of the 2,000ksh Duka La Swara voucher is….(you’ll have to do your own drumroll as you can’t hear mine)…DECLAN OTTARO! Well done to everyone, find all the entries below.

We know some of you really tried to get a PB but were a few seconds short, or had planned a long distance run but chickened out because of the weather/laziness/needing a rest (speaking for myself), so fear not, we bring you WEEK 2 of the Swara PB Challenge! That’s right, we’re starting again, so the competition is open again, to all runs from today, Monday 26th April, to Sunday 2nd May at 11.59pm 🙂 And yes, if you applied last week, you can apply again! Another 2,000ksh Duka La Swara voucher is up for grabs.
