Spar Marathon to cater for women

The annual 10km Spar Marathon will be held in Windhoek on April 23rd, but this year it’s exclusively for women, according to organizers who aim to empower women. 

The Sports officer in the Erongo Region, Berthold Karumendu, announced at the launch that they plan to grow the event as it has been done in South Africa. 

“I received a call from my Spar colleagues about reworking the event, as they wanted to change the race dynamic. I believe this is a great idea that would empower women, and I think it’s good to see this change,” he said.

The event will take place at the Wanderers Sports Field in the capital. Minister of Sports, Agnes Tjongarero, commended the initiative as a great start in empowering women and urged them to participate in the inaugural women-only event.

“I believe this is a great start, especially considering that a similar event in South Africa has become much larger. I think we are taking the same route, and this is a wonderful initiative overall. I encourage all women to participate in this fantastic opportunity,” she said.
