Urban Swaras Run 653 @ masai Eco Lodge, Kajiado

Life just keeps getting berra and berra, right?? (if you know, you know). The run was even berra than ever, from Berra Hotel, going right up the hills, and giving ample photo opportunities with the towering turbines, and splendid views of the Rift Valley. And lo and behold, the sun even came out to greet us! Some of us got sunburnt (no naming names, but you will spot me – I mean THEM – for obvious reasons, running around the streets of Nairobi sporting a fetching sunburn)! For those of us who were running with the club for the first time, karibuni! Also, remember that the Ngong Hills and the trails around there are always open, so you can run there anytime, even outside of the Saturday Swara runs. There are some 2022 Swara calendars remaining, we are now selling them at the bargain price of 300ksh, so get something to spice up your walls or your mum’s upcountry home for the rest of the year 🙂 We also have a few leftover t shirts for 500-1,500ksh, grab one at the next run.

This week’s run – Masai Eco Lodge, Kajiado

Have you ever run from the jewel of Kajiado? No?! Well, now is your chance! Masai Eco Lodge is familiarly referred to as the jewel of Kajiado, and for good reason. It sits on a sprawling organic farm, has activities for all the family, and OF COURSE offers perfect running terrain for eager Swaras! So we will be running from there this Saturday 9th July, starting at 8am. There will be marked trails of 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40km. You have the option of staying overnight (see rates attached and in the Starting Line) or just coming from the day (bring on the expressway)! It is approximately 100km from Nairobi, off the Namanga Highway at Kajiado. We encourage carpooling and invite you to signal carpooling preferences in the registration form, the results of which we will share throughout the week.
