Upcoming runs

Mt Kenya Ultra

Time is ticking, and the Mount Kenya Ultra Marathon (Mountain to Mountain) is almost upon us! 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:

Naivasha Relay

This a legendary, epic, and unmissable run, taking you on a relay trail run in teams of 9, across more than 90km from Nairobi all the way to Naivasha! Organised every year by the Nairobi Hash House Harriers, we are opening up to members of the Swaras to be part of the Swara team(s). Reach out on if you’re interested. There will be a team fee, and fees for transport and food and accommodation, so this is not a normal run (though of course it will be subsidised by the club). The relay will take up the weekend of the 8th October 2023.

Stan Chart

Registration is already open for the Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon, happening on Sunday 29th October, and you can register using the exclusive Swara link here:
