Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 669 @ Stan Chart Warmup Run, Public Service Club, Upper Hille

Dear Swaras,
A great run was had by all from Bavaria Gardens, Westlands, and a big thank you to Annika for volunteering to help with registration; even if she can’t run, she’s very much a part of the club 🙂 Check out the Starting Line for some photo highlights: I hope you’re all looking forward to the two next big events on the Swara calendar: 1. Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon happening this Sunday, and 2. The Swara Gala! 

For the marathon, be sure to collect your kits any day this week from Uhuru Gardens (just give your name and show your confirmation email). Then for the Gala, be sure to book to ensure you get your distance medal and you don’t miss out (once we’re fully booked we will close bookings). Link to book:

There will be support for all Stan Chart runners (hurrah) provided by all the running clubs banding together so BE SURE TO WEAR YOUR SWARA TEE! If you don’t have one yet, get one at the Saturday run.

This week’s run: Public Service Club, Upper Hill

To mark the 24-hour countdown to Stan Chart, this Saturday we will have a 7km warm-up/shakeout run from Public Service Club, Upper Hill. Post-run stretching (to also calm the nerves!!) will be led by Elvis Abonyo, superstar strength and personal trainer. Show up at 7am, see you there!
