Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 693 @ Cafe Bistro, Madaraka

Well that’s it folks, the first Swara Diani run has come and gone! Sorry/not sorry to those who missed it – you had better be there next time, it is the only credible cure for FOMO, so I hear.

Some of the highlights: the entire run being re-marked at a moment’s notice after an all-night downpour; watermelon and sodas every few kilometres thanks to our Kwale Runner helpers; 40km, with 12km on the beach (ngaiiiii), the hotel manager running with us; afterparty at The Full Moon (what happens in Diani…) and an after-after party in Wasini! Phew! Photo highlights below. Thanks to Masika for organising us, and to all who joined us for making it a memorable long weekend!

This week’s run – Cafe Bistro, Madaraka

This week we’re running from Cafe Bistro, at Rubis Nyayo Stadium/Madaraka. This will therefore be a town run, so expect mostly tarmac. Full details and link to register below. We will also have the Red Bull Wings To Fly team on-site for you to register for the upcoming Wings To Fly run, and also get a cold can of red bull at the end!

Next out of town run

The next big out of town run we have to look forward to is the Aberdare Cottage Ultra in the Aberdares (duh). It’s coming up on the 29th April, so be sure to book that weekend! You can either do the round trip in a day or stay the night before and/or after at Aberdare Cottage. There will surely be some mbuzi on offer, so it’s well worth considering an overnight stay! Book directly with the hotel; feel free to share with a friend, rooms are limited, as is money 😉 Run registration link coming soon.
