Urban Swaras Starting Line run 659 @Honeywell Resort, Lusigetti

Dear Swaras,

Last week’s run was a GREAT run, winding through the quiet streets of Lavington, Kilimani and Kileleshwa, and was also a bittersweet farewell (or a see you later) to our Trail Queen, Loice Mbogo. She has served as an official of the club since 2019, and we can’t thank her enough for her service to the club and her friendship to many a Swara. We wish her luck as she pursued further studies in the United States! See some photo highlights of the run AND the cake here:
