This weekend we had our AGM and a run from West Wood Hotel. We had a fantastic turnout and a great road run around Westlands/Parklands/Spring Valley (what felt like half of Nairobi)! You will find the AGM minutes included herein for your perusal. The main takeaways: membership will be increased by 100ksh a month, i.e. 300ksh a quarter. This means instead of 1,500ksh per quarter, it will be 1,800ksh per quarter.

Jamhuri Run for Avani and Niraj
We have an extra special bonus run on Jamhuri Day, an initiative of all the Nairobi recreational running clubs coming together to show solidarity with Avani and Niraj, two recreational runners who are much treasured and valued by the entire community and who have endured an unbelievable hardship in recent weeks, as you must have seen in the news. They have essentially lost their family home to illegal land grabbing and thugs. This run is open to anyone, and the clubs will be covering most of the costs, so you can pay 500ksh for breakfast, and we invite you to make a contribution which will be forwarded to the family. Details below!
Date: Monday 12th December. Distances: 10, 15, 20, 25km. Venue: Parklands Sports Club. Flagging off: 7am, assembly from 6.30am. Breakfast: 500ksh.
