Mpikiwane Marathon is our annual marathon held on the 26th December each year. Our debut marathon was in 2015 and we had about 40 attendance, mainly family members and neighbours. In 2016, we had about double the number of attendance to 80 with people as far as Dzimauli and Thohoyandou. The marathon is our was of getting our community to unit in sports and to keep fit while burning the fats of the Summer Holidays.
This format of the last marathon (2016) was a 10km run and a 5km fun walk. People of all ages are encouraged to attend provided they have a green light from their doctors that they are fit to do so. We do, however have the medical team on standby to assist with any medical emergency that could occur. The marathon is free to participate but donations of a minimum of R30 to the IE Phalanndwa Foundation is welcome.
