Rössing marathon go virtual again in 2022
(16 December 2021)

Rössing Uranium will host the second Rössing Marathon – Virtual Run, on 12 March 2022.

The annual event will again be hosted virtually to ensure that we adhere to the Covid-19 restrictions and allow runners to participate from wherever they find themselves.

Following a successful virtual run in June 2021, Rössing Uranium, as the main sponsor, has been following the Covid-19 pandemic pattern and have decided again to host the event virtually for the safety of its runners.

Rössing Uranium’s General Manager Organisational Services Liezl Davies said safety is our key priority. “At Rössing, we do not compromise on safety, and with that in mind, the safety of our runners is important,” she said.

She added that, despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Rössing Uranium is committed to continuing with the popular event, as it forms part of the mine’s social investment activities. “We invite all the runners within the borders of Namibia to register for the event, on the Events Today Namibia website, starting 10 January to 17 February 2022.”

Runners can enter in the following age categories:

Men's Open - 20-39
Ladies' Open - 20-39
Veteran Men - 40-49
Veteran Ladies - 40-49
Masters - 50-59
Grand Masters - 60+
Juniors (for 10km Run only) - ages 12-19

Details on the event will be shared in due course.
