A fun day in Moka for the Family
This beautiful day was blessed with a gorgeous sunshine and nearly 2,100 participants gathered at La Laura-Malenga to take part in the 8th edition of the Moka Trail on Saturday 3 October 2020. They set off early in the morning for the 5, 7, 14 or 28km races according to their sporting level. Some of them were in contention for a medal while others wanted to spend an unforgettable day and get the adrenaline pumping!

MokaMwad and the volunteers
Apart from the trail runners, about a hundred Moka’mwad volunteers contributed to the success of the event, helping with the signing-off and refreshments, among others. In addition to the vendors catering for the participants and public on site, there was a photo booth to allow everyone to leave with beautiful keepsakes offered by Moka Smart City and a face painting workshop to keep the kids busy.
