Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 713 @ The Vineyard, Ridgeways

Dear Swaras,

You did it! All those who came to Fluorspar to conquer the famous Fluorspar Hill, you did it! Not only did you run up an almost constant slant in the legendary Kerio Valley, BUT you took part in a fantastic Swara run that only happened because all of YOU. There were snacks, there was sweat, there was mursik and mbuzi at the end, and there were a lot of runners out on those hills, to say the least. We want to extend a HUGE thank you to the Rift Valley Swaras who sponsored this run, including subsidising the cost of the transport, and catering for much of the fun and games. We appreciate and thank you all, and are so grateful to you all for showcasing your beautiful part of the country. See some photo highlights in the Starting Line:
