Urban Swaras Starting Line run 667 @ ACK St Paul’s, Kiambu

Dear Swaras, 

Well done to all who ran this weekend, be it at Kahara (Swara run), Karura (Stan Chart warm-up run) or a little further afield at the Chicago Marathon! You all did yourselves proud and most of all enjoyed it, I hope! There is a lot to look forward to this month and next, so aside from this Saturday’s run from ACK St Paul’s in Kiambu, be sure to look at the gala info, and Stan Chart info below! All info as always in the Starting Line:

If you would like to be run as part of a relay team (if 42km is a little ambitious for you, but 10.5km is doable), then reach out now to be a part of a Swara team! This is really the fun run option for Stan Chart 🙂
