Close to 500 for Resolution Run


LOBAMBA – Big Game Parks has announced Lactalis Eswatini (formerly named Parmalat) as a new title sponsor for the Resolution­Run23.

This is a great event that can double as a corporate team building opportunit­y. It will be staged on Saturday at Mlilwane Wildlfe Sanctuary.

“For us at Lactalis we thrive on challenges, so this is the type of event for us to get involved in. More than that, it is also an opportunit­y for us to support conservati­on on our home ground; create awareness for conservati­on and sustainabi­lity in our communitie­s.

“These elements are a part of our culture in the #lactalisex­perience” said Lucky Phiri, who is the Trade Marketing Officer.

#Resolution­Run23 organisers expressed their appreciati­on on the support they have received so far. This includes monetary sponsor, water point and merchandis­e. They said they were happy to have all sponsors on board.


“Quite a number of sponsors this year are making prize categories super exciting. The sponsors this year range from Oracle Group, NTT Toyota Eswatini, Purple Chilli, Patula Risk, PWC, Dixies, The Smoke & Grill, Swazi Trails, Royal Jozini, Dombeya Game Reserve, Love Notes Biscuits, Jenelle Beauty Salon, Wide Horizon, Lidwala Lodge, Computroni­cs, Black Mamba, Ngwenya Glass, Webster Print, Nsoko Trading, Funky Pants, Seeff, Sheba’s Breast, Roki Center, Jackalberr­y, Mantenga Lodge, Bushlands Butchery, Southern Trading, Karoo Attire, Vickery Seedlings,” said the organisers.

Regarding the number of entries, it was disclosed that there were over 480 currently and the 5km and 10km had already reached the 200 maximum entry mark. However the 21km Challenge still has some entries available, though by close of business yesterday, entry spaces were closer to the target.

There are three categories 21km, 10km and 5km. The Oracle 21km Challenge will start at 5:30am; 10km NTT Toyota Eswatini Mini Challenge at 6am; and the 5km Purple Chilli Fun Run at 6:10am.


Registrati­on will be done tomorrow at Mlilwane Esangweni Gate from 3pm to 7pm for those collecting their race numbers and goodie bags.

Registrati­on will still be open from 4am on race day. Registrati­on for each race will be closed 30 minutes before each event.

The organisers managed to secure seven water tables to make sure runners are well hydrated, as they tackle Eswatini’s outdoor ‘lover’s paradise’, which is Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary.

The organisers shared that they were looking forward to having a good turnover this year and hope the weather will be favourable.

There’s a new prize category. The biggest team will receive a gift from Mlilwane, which will be a hog on a spit enjoyed at the camp!

Groups are encouraged to enter in numbers. Prizes will range from money, accommodat­ion, pants and meals, among others.
