Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 710 @ KEFRI, Muguga + other upcoming runs

Dear Swaras,

We had a great run from Villa Park Springs last Saturday – don’t believe me, see the photo highlights in the Starting Line for happy smiling runners! We had some true trail, after a couple of weeks of pounding the tarmac. See some photo highlights in the Starting Line:

As you may have heard on the running grapevine, the Mount Kenya Ultra Marathon (Mountain to Mountain) is coming in just over two months, which will come sooner than we think! Registration is now open, and this year it will be BIG! We are partnering with Nyeri County, and have got interest from running clubs outside of Kenya, and from many recreational runners. So be sure to book out your weekend of 23rd September for this unmissable run. You can already register for the Ultra here:
