Discover an ancient communication

and transportation system

The story of the Harambee Relay can be connected to a historic Kenyan mail delivery system utilizing relays of runners. Away from the railway line, the postal authorities developed this mail delivery system using runners posted thirty miles or so apart. The mail bags were relayed from runner to runner, never pausing night or day until they reached their destination.

The system worked perfectly with remarkable speed and regularity.  The mail bags were carried across the Sosian River for delivery a further 64 miles to a final destination.

The Relay and Women’s 10K

 The Harambee Relay and Women 10k will occur at El Camino Real Park trailhead.

El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro was blazed atop a network of footpaths that connected Mexico’s ancient cultures with the equally ancient cultures of the interior West. Starting in Mexico City, the frontier wagon road brought settlers into today’s New Mexico. Once travelers crossed the arid lands above Ciudad Chihuahua, they followed the wide Rio Grande Valley north into New Mexico. 

The Harambee relay format was based on the Ekiden races native to Japan, where six runners teamed up for legs of varying lengths to cover the classic 42.195 KM ( 26.2 miles marathon distance.
