Urban Swaras Starting Line run 668 @ Bavaria Gardens, Westlands

Did many of you know that ACK St Paul’s Kiambu holds some great historical importance? I’m pretty sure that none of you realised that, instead focusing on the trail in front of you, and the breakfast at the finish line! Great fun and great running was had by all, and yet another Saturday well spent with the Swaras! Find some photo highlights here:

We also had some outstanding runs happening in Amsterdam, well done to all who excelled and truly flew the Swara flag high. We salute you all!
