I'm Wachu and have been running for 12 years now. For these 12 years, running has grown to become my morning companion, my quiet place, it's where I go to pray, it's where I really get to listen to my body and my thoughts and travel within and outside these borders. I enjoy solo or group runs with friends and loads of music- it's never that serious.
I chose to share this particular run I did in 2018 with my friends since it was probably the most enjoyable run I have done to date. I mean it was the beautiful morning sunrise, the killer elevation and just good company of friends suffering the same fate with me all the way.
This was a 25km run on the straight forward Magadi Road (South West of Nairobi) from a little town called Oltepes to Corner Baridi with a 934m in elevation gain, spectacular sunrise views, the fluid views of the Rift Valley escarpment and of course Ngong Hills as you finish up on the trail course. A perfect trail on a road less travelled for anyone training for a full marathon and ultra runs.
