Change the world


The annual NMMU Madibaz George half-marathon is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 22 August at the university’s campus in George.

The 21.1km route is widely regarded as one of the most scenic trails in this region and will take runners through the indigenous forest surrounding the campus.

“Although it is a challenging route, it is not too difficult; therefore we invite both runners and walkers to participate,” said Hugo Loubser of the university’s Sport Office.

All participants who successfully complete the half-marathon will receive a special NMMU medal.

Registration will take place at the campus’ rugby field on the day of the event from 06:30 for the 08:00 start.

To turn the day into a family outing, the university added a 5km fun run/walk; as well as a street mile to the programme. These races will start at 08:15 and 08:45 respectively.
