NAIROBI, Kenya– The second edition of the annual Karura Chapel Run is set to take place on August 3rd 2024 at Two Rivers, Koroga Grounds. The event will seek to build up from the success of last year’s edition that saw over 580 participants and 6 corporate sponsors marking a successful start to the initiative.

The run, organized by Karura Community Chapel, is a charity-based event that combines walking and jogging, known as “wogging.”. The event, held under the theme, “Wogging for a Cause,” aims to raise funds that will go towards a charitable cause, while promoting health and fitness by encouraging physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices.

The Karura Chapel Run is a unique event that combines walking and jogging, known as “wogging,” to provide a balance between the two activities. This form of exercise is less intense than running, making it accessible to individuals of all ages and abilities. The event is open to people of all ages and fitness levels, encouraging families and groups to participate together.
