1.1.2. John Simoes Gil - Ngong Road Forest Sanctuary


About the Contributor

I'm a french-portuguese guy and have lived in Kenya for 3 years working as a PE teacher at the French School of Nairobi (LFDD). I love running, I think I always loved to run, but unfortunately this last years I've been chaining the wounds so nowadays I can't run as I would like to. And because of my weakened body, I always try to find places to run on the grass or on a dirt path to prevent injuries and I prefer short distances. That's why I'm sharing with you this great run of 5K which is located at Ngong Forest Sanctuary.
