Urban Swaras Starting Line run 583 @Leleshwa Getaway

Dear Swaras,

We may not have been planning for rains this week, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned this past year it’s that even the best laid plans are likely to be scuppered by anything from rain to a global pandemic! So in typical Swara fashion we embraced the rain and had a ball.

A BIG welcome to all our new members! We’ve had an influx of new members at the beginning of this year and I hope you’re all as excited as I am to get to know them, run with them, learn from them, and have a good ol’ Swara time with them! Meet some of them in this week’s Starting Line and some muddy photo highlights:

HUGE HUGE well done to some of our members who undertook the ambitious and audacious CircumMountKenya epic adventure last week, with the Ultra Running In Nairobi Club, led by Wingkei Chan. They completed more than 370km over six days, going all around Mount Kenya and towns such as Kimunye, Timau, and Naro Moru. Let’s all wish them a speedy recovery from their outlandish exertions.

This week we’re running from the beautiful Leleshwa Getaway, just the other side of the national park in Kajiado County (next to Kitengela Glass). Expect views of the city, the occasional ACTUAL Swara sighting, and the venue has installed a pool since we last visited, so for 200ksh you can enjoy the pool and even make a day of it!

Be sure to bring m pesa to pay your subs for the quarter or year ahead, our Treasurer is ready to tick your name off 🙂
