We sponsored the IBL Sun to Sun Marathon presented by the Nedbank Fast Legs Athletic Club in Thaba Nchu on 13 August 2016.
There was 21.1km half marathon and 10km road race. The 21.1km marathon started at Black Mountain (Previously known as Thaba Nchu Sun) to Mmabana Stadium – front opposite Naledi Sun. The 10km started at the specified 10km board on the same road. Free bus was provided for the participants and supporters.
There was prize money, branded towels and medals that were received or won in each category as follows; male and female Juniors and Seniors, 40 – 49yrs, 50 – 59, 60+ male and female for both 21.1km and 10km.
We have been sponsoring this race for the past three years. It has been held annually for the local athletes, commuters and the community at large as a CSI Project in the BBT (Botshabelo, Bloemfontein and Thaba Nchu) area. Our intention is to develop and nurture athletes in Mangaung and Free State to prepare them to become national / international athletes.
