Line up for marathon and other events

The New Age (Gauteng) - - NORTH WEST NEWS - DAVID SITHOLE

OLYMPIA Park sta­dium in Rusten­burg is to stage a marathon event to pro­mote healthy liv­ing.

Bo­janala dis­trict mu­nic­i­pal­ity, in part­ner­ship with Ath­let­ics North West North, will host a 21.1km run on May 13 to en­cour­age com­mu­nity mem­bers to adopt healthy life­styles through tak­ing part in sport.

For those who might find the 21.1km race too much of a gru­elling propo­si­tion, there is the op­tion of tak­ing part in the 5km fun run. There is also a shorter event for chi­dren.

En­try forms for the races, which drew a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of com­peti­tors when held last year, are al­ready avail­able.

Event or­gan­is­ers have re­vealed that there will be spe­cial medals pre­sented to those par­tic­i­pants who man­age to com­plete the re­spec­tive dis­tances and, as an added in­cen­tive, the first 1500 en­tries for the 21.1km race will re­ceive sparkling new T-shirts.

The cham­pi­onship is in line with calls by Pre­mier Supra Mahumapelo for com­mu­ni­ties to take up ac­tiv­i­ties that help bring­down obe­sity lev­els in the prov­ince and that aid peo­ple to place more value on life­styles that pro­mote healthy liv­ing.
