Modimolle’s well-known athlete and principal at Rooiberg Itireleng High School, Ally Pole, will lead a group of athletes from Modimolle, who will be taking part in this year’s Marakele Marathon. 

Thabazimbi’s Marakele National Park is already counting down to this year’s race, which will be taking place on Saturday, 3 March, at the local park.

With just less than a month to go, preparations were well underway for the annual race, which has been dubbed “the run on the wild side.”

The marathon is organised by SANParks in partnership with Thabazimbi Marathon Club.

SANParks northern region spokesperson, Divhani Maremba, said since its inception, the marathon has seen remarkable growth with over 700 people participating in the 2017 race.

The event has targeted upwards of 1 000 participants for the 2018 leg of the popular race.

“The atmosphere in the park as well as the terrain all make this race stand out,” Maremba said.
