Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 689 @ Levilla Gardens, Kikuyu

I think this must have been the first time that we’ve ever run in Tigoni and NOT had rain! Hurrah! In fact the ground was dry as a bone, a true reflection of the lack of rain that is ravaging the country. It was a beautiful run, and we welcome all the new runners who joined us! Looking forward to seeing you on the trails in future. We also had a professional photographer join us, with a camera and GoPro – we will share the photos and videos when we have them.
