This is a tough, sometimes annoying but rewarding run which we called the Pangani 10k! From Muthaiga, out onto Kiambu Road, leading to the big roundabout there, past the entrance of the Muthaiga Golf Club. By this big roundabout, take the Pangani Road route, not Thika Road or Mobil Plaza Road. Go down this busy hill and keep your eyes out for the crazy Matatu drivers! Then up the hill past the pigs at the side of the road to the next roundabout. Go to the right of the roundabout and follow this large road where there is normally a petrol station with big buses. If you keep on this road, you pass some big Hindu temples and to the next roundabout. Here turn right past the other side of the temple up a small hill. If you keep going on this busy road with woods on one side and a sign for a grass bowling place, and on the other the Aga Khan Hospital and school. Now past a Kenol petrol station and Caltex Plaza, down the steep hill here (the easy part), but what next? Yes up the steep side of it, past a tennis court, and follow the road up the bend, where if you keep going you come out by Muthaiga Mini Market. Keep going and eventually you can either turn into Muthaiga or keep going on, down past Gertrudes Childrens Hospital, Muthaiga Club and Mobil Plaza back to the big roundabout from the start, and then the same way back! Sounds long and hard but is a tough and demanding run, be proud when you finish it!
