About NairobiRun

The concept of  NairobiRun  is to celebrate the city and its runners in order to encourage sport and spread joy and good humor.

Nairobi Run  invites all residents of Nairobi as well as citizens of other cities to explore and (re)discover the beauty of the City under the sun and its magnificent places.

By celebrating the city, our goal is to highlight all the beautiful running/walking places in the city and invite runners/walkers to discover them: Arboretum, Ngong Road Forest Sanctuary, Karura Forest, Oloolua Nature Trail

By celebrating runners, our goal is to showcase all groups of runners, individual runners, coaches, sports champions and any active member of the Nairobi runner community, and allow people to discover them, get in touch with  them . ..

Around twenty non-competitive activities  will be organized by the city’s running community (running, walking, jogging, introduction to jogging, fitness, etc.). The details of each activity as well as the schedule will be communicated on our social networks ( Facebook and instagram ).

Participants can join one of its activities or run/walk alone, in groups of friends, with family … the place, the distance and the schedule of their choice.
