What Is It?

A Half Marathon and 5K Fun Run/Walk that will take place in Shakawe. Following the race is  a Health Expo with activities that promote health and wellbeing, community programs and services, local entertainment and food vendors.

An awards ceremony for runners of the Half Marathon will close out the Health Expo event. Awards will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers for men, women and youth.  In addition, all runners will have an opportunity to win “spot prizes”, so you’ll want to stay around.  You have to be present to win!

Why Are We Doing It?

To inspire the community to live healthier lives.  We also want to raise funds to purchase an ambulance/mobile clinic to increase health service delivery in hard to reach areas in the greater Shakawe community.
