Run Map Kenya Project

Run Map Kenya Banner


Our Goal

We want to create Kenya's most comprehensive database of GPX mapped running runs, so that wherever you live or travel in Kenya, you can discover new and exciting places to run


Interactive Map


Using the Map

The map is best explored using PC/Laptop directly in Google Maps. Individual contributor profiles can be viewed here.

Each profile has a Garmin Connect link to the GPX file of the route which can be downloaded (no Garmin Connect account required), and uploaded to any GPS device with a route navigation function. Route maps and descriptions are also included for anyone not using GPS navigation.

Happy exploring!

Disclaimer: All routes are shared in good faith, however, Run Beyond has not independently verified individual files or routes.  Runners using the GPX files provided do so at their own risk.  Whenever running, and particularly when exploring a new route, please take appropriate safety and security precautions (run with a partner, let friends or family know where you are running, carry minimum valuables and conceal where possible, carry some change to get you home if necessary).  In case you experience any security issues, or have other feedback or comments on of the routes, please let us know at [email protected].


How to Take Part

We want you to share your favorite run and a little bit about yourself as a contributor.  Your run can be any distance, anywhere in Kenya, and on any surface.  The key criterion is it's got to be a run that you love and want to share

To take part, simply email us at [email protected] with the GPX file and the information below:

  • The location of the route and a GPX file downloaded from your activity tracker (e.g. Garmin Connect, Strava, etc.)
  • A picture of yourself
  • A brief profile of yourself as a runner and why you have chosen to share this run
  • A brief description of the route including key junctions, landmarks, things to look out for

Note: by submitting an entry you give us permission to share your photo and running profile on our website and social media.  Ideally please start your route at an easily recognizable landmark
