WHAT DO I BRING ON EVENT DAY?

• There is traffic on the road that you are running on and you won’t hear it.
• Sometimes marshals or referees will need to direct you and you won’t be able to hear them.

RACE WAVES

Pretty fast

Wave 1: Women | Starts 09:00
The pretty fast is the women’s only wave, it’s about getting the girls together to celebrate life, health and fitness by doing a quick 5km loop through the city and sharing your experience with the world. After all who runs the world? GIRLS!

Pace Makers

Wave 2: 50 years + | Starts 09:45
This wave is for those just slightly over the hill, the ones who set the pace in their hey day, but now set the pace in their own way. For those of your 50 and up this is the wave for you.

Sole Mates

Wave 3: Pairs | Starts 10:30
We all have that significant other, who we can’t be separated from, it can be your bestie, your brother or even your mother? Whoever it is make sure you’re in two’s for this wave, better yet dress as a pair and stand a chance to WIN!

Young, Fast & Free

Wave 4: u/18 years | Starts 11:15
No one can quite keep up with your speed, you run on adrenaline and the energy of being young. When you’re under 18 life can’t slow you down, so bring your school mates, or your school disco dates and run like the wind!

Charities

involved in the event

Unogwaja

Unogwaja is a growing legacy inspired by an incredible South African story of hope that we can all be part of

The Unogwaja Challenge commemorates Phil Masterton-Smith’s feat of 1933 by establishing a unique biathlon in South Africa where participants cycle from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg in ten days and then run the Comrades Marathon the next day with a significant emphasis on raising funds for chosen charities. To ensure the event “grows” within the spirit of how it began we invite athletes from around the world to join the challenge each year.

The Unogwaja is not just a race from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg; it is a journey of inspiration, fun and togetherness born out of one man’s determination and spirit to follow his heart and participate in the Comrades Marathon.

Founded in 2011, the Unogwaja Challenge has raised over R4 000 000 for charity.

The Unogwaja Charitable Trust was founded in 2015 to align the special message of Unogwaja with our collective charity vision and mission. This vision can be broadly described under “education” but at its core is the willingness to support, enable and empower those people in our country who have not given up hope and who are already doing their best to make it better for themselves and the people around them, regardless of their circumstances.

  • The Unogwaja Charitable Trust supports Primary School education in various areas throughout SA.
  • Our mission is to ensure the support results in something tangible, we do not believe in ‘hand outs’.
  • There are currently 2 Primary Schools supported by the trust, namely Lebone Village in Bloemfontein and Umsilinga in Pietermaritzburg .
  • All funds raised through the Unogwaja Challenge will go directly to the Unogwaja Charitable Trust.
