• revive Orange Phikwe National Marathon sponsorship
Orange Botswana has partnered with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) to host the exciting Orange Phikwe National Marathon, renewing its sponsorship to the tune of P660,000.00 for the next three years in alignment with the company’s business strategy to help grow, nurture and support local talent and sports development initiatives. “The Orange Phikwe National Marathon shines a spotlight on the town of Selibe-Phikwe and creates an atmosphere of excitement for the people of the town. It also offers great support and opportunities for the many local businesses directly and indirectly involved with the event. This occasion brings renewed hope and energy at a time when the residents need it most following the closure of the mines. Through this Marathon we hope to instil a strong sense of unity through the community, as we all come together for health and wellness,” said Orange Botswana Director Legal & Corporate Affairs, Lepata Mafa-Nthumole.
The 2019 Orange Phikwe National Marathon, which is accredited by the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF), will take place on 14th of September 2019. It is expected to attract both international and local runners, professionals and amateurs alike. Runners can choose from a selection of four races which are: 5 km Marathon Fun Run for all runners including amateurs and children; 10 km Marathon; 21.1 km Marathon; 42.2 km Marathon
