The 2nd edition of the Navachab half marathon proved a huge success in Karibib last weekend.
“I’m very happy with the way things went and the enthusiasm demonstrated by the athletes, although we attracted a smaller field of participants compared to last year. Nevertheless, the quality and standard of the race were good. Top athletes from both the Namibia Defence Force and Nampol Athletics Clubs took most of the prizes on Saturday,” said event organizer Bertholdt Karumendu.
Karumendu expressed hope that the annual event would grow in leaps and bounds and reach its full potential in the next five years.
“I would like to acknowledge and appreciate the support of QKR Namibia/Navachab Gold Mine as the main sponsor of the event, partnered by FNB Karibib, OK Grocery Karibib, Paramount, Namic, Coca-Cola Namibia, Karibib Private School, Agra Karibib, Grazer Supermarket/Engen Service Station and Karibib Town Council.”
