Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE - ZAVELA MAKWABE

The Slay Fit­ness Camp is call­ing all schools, sports clubs, churches and youth in King Wil­liam’s Town and sur­round­ing ar­eas to take part in the Crosstown Marathon on Satur­day Novem­ber 10.

Slay Fit­ness Camp mar­ket­ing man­ager Nt­sikelelo Nto­bololo said the Crosstown Marathon was a 5km fun run aimed at pro­mot­ing health, fit­ness and unity, es­pe­cially among the youth.

“Our start­ing point will be the Lovedale Col­lege King Cam­pus. We will run around the sur­round­ing sub­urbs all the way to the Victoria Grounds, where there will be food, fun and en­ter­tain­ment.

“We hope to gather as many young peo­ple as we can to start con­ver­sa­tions and have fun in a clean, healthy way.

“We have pulled in young lo­cal en­trepreneurs, mo­ti­va­tional speak­ers and en­ter­tain­ers as well,” Nto­bololo said.

The idea be­hind the marathon came about when a few gym bud­dies got to­gether and de­cided to try and make health and fit­ness a trend in the King Wil­liam’s Town com­mu­nity, he said.

“It’s been proven that your psy­cho­log­i­cal progress is de­pen­dent on your phys­i­cal and health out­look. When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you do good,” he said.

There will be live per­for­mances by lo­cal, award-win­ning artist Zipho Vena, Ac­cous­tic Con­nex­ion, Im­bizo, Luvi En­tourage En­ter­tain­ment, Celtic Stu­ur­man and Dj Mat­saw.

In­quiries: Nto­bololo on 063-443-0464.
