Urban Swaras Starting Line Run 642 @ Hunger’s Nest, Langata

What a magnificent, marvellous, and mesmerising run that was, with a double M run – Mua Hills with the Mwololos. Thank you so much to the Mwololo family for hosting us as a club, and thank you to all who came out, despite the fuel crisis and the holiday madness! The route had views every which way you looked, and it was perfect running terrain for trail-hungry runners and scenery aficionados. What a treat! See photo highlights in the Starting Line:

This Saturday we are heading back to town, and running from Hunger’s Nest, in Langata. We will have on offer distances from 10km to 30km, and if you know what’s right for you you’ll be gearing up for the first Swara Kericho trail run the weekend after so save some energy for that! See full details and register here:

A huge thank you also to Dedan Miricho, our first Swara Zoom guest of 2022, and it was a hugely informative session, with a fantastic attendance, leaving everyone begging for more! If you’re interested in being a guest for Show&Tell or An Audience With…, or you have an idea for a guest, reach out to the Secretary. Thanks to Michael Nawari for reviving this much-loved tradition.
