REGISTRATION FOR THE ULUNDI/NONGOMA 56KM ULTRA MARATHON OPENS NEXT WEEK
March 18 is the date for the 2012 annual 56km Nongoma to Ulundi Ultra Marathon and registration opens next week. Organisers of the race, Zululand District Municipality, expect a record number of entries, including runners from outside our borders to take part.
This annual event is run under the auspices of KZN Athletics, and in accordance with the IAAF and ASA rules. It is regarded by many as a pre-qualifier to the well- known and popular Comrades and Two Oceans marathons. Both last year winners, Malawian Henry Moyo (males) and Margaret Mahohoma, a winner in the females section from Zimbabwe, will be among this year’s participants.
The Honourable Mayor of ZDM, Councillor VZ KaMagwaza-Msibi, who believes in that sports when well managed can play major and meaningful role in unifying the nation, will again this year present cheques of R20 000 to both female and male winners.
Both second placed runners will walk away with R10 000 cash, while those who will come third will each pocket R5 000. Gold medals will also be awarded to the first 10 runners home and silver ones to the following 600.
Besides this main event, there will be other short distance races (10km), as well as a 5km fun run.
