4.1.1. Emmanuel Ng'eno - Gathiga Rd


About the Contributor

I started running late 2018 with barely any focus but just the mood of the moment. After interacting with other social runners, my interest grew. I invested more time and worked towards improving my racing time for various distances. I always start the race knowing the effort I've put in and am about to commit to.

I am happy with the progress so far and have managed to achieve personal bests as follows: 5KM - 17:25; 10KM - 35:53; 21.1KM - 1:20:32; and 42.2KM - 2:48:04.

Take Away: don't dream of winning, train for it!


About the Route

The route is called the Nyathuna Loop and starts at Gathiga Road junction along Getathuru Road on your way to Wangige (at the This N That Business Park).

Look out for cars/trucks as the route passes through Ndenderu-Kikuyu by-pass still under construction.

I chose this route because it's gradually Hilly, 70% trail, minimal human/traffic disruption, and superb altitude. All are welcomed to explore this marvelous route.
