Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 723 @ The Smith, Rongai

Dear Swaras,

We truly went back in time this weekend, with our Golden Oldies themed end of year dinner, which was a huge hit, and fully booked! There was a soul train, there was poetry, there were awards, there was cake and stickers, there was an award for best dressed, there was a quiz thanks to David Gray of Quizmasters, and there were just enough speeches to make us feel loved by all!

Thanks to all who attended and made it such an event to remember. Special thanks to our sponsors, Shiwan Adventures, Kingvale Insurance, and Avani Patel. Also thanks to our members who volunteered to put the event together: Njeri the Poet (MC), Margaret Njuguna (awards), Malaika (decor), and Felicita. Thanks also to James and Benja for helping out on the night. Well done to all who won awards, and also to ALL who survived the Urban Swaras 2023, what a running year we’ve had! See some awesome photo highlights in the Starting Line:

Before that we also had a very present-day run from Ambo Gardens, a great way to warm up for the evening party!

This week’s run – The Smith, Rongai

Join us at The Smith Hotel in Rongai, for some nice trail and dirt roads, oh how we’ve missed you! Distances on offer from 10km to 30km. See the Starting Line for more details and to register:
