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.
