All roads this weekend lead to Nedbank’s Citi Dash

The 2019 edition of the Nedbank Citi Dash will take place on Sunday, at the Zoo Park at 07h00.

The event is set to be the country’s largest participatory sporting events of the year, and will once again coincide with International Olympics Day, according to sponsors, Nedbank.

The popular race, which takes place along the Independence Avenue in Windhoek, has already received an over whelming response from sports bodies, schools, the private sector as well as the general public.

The event will see participants take on the 5km and 10km, running or either walking.

“The elite 10 km race will have top Namibian athletes compete for the honors. The top three wheelchair and visually impaired athletes will also receive honors,” said Nedbank Spokesperson, Selma Kaulinge.

Entry tickets for the Nedbank Citi Dash are still available on the Events Today website until, Thursday at 18h00. Registration and number collection will take place on Saturday, 22 June from 14h00 to 17h00 at the Zoo Park.

Last year, the City Dash attracted more that 1300 participants.

The Economist does not have a dedicated sport reporter. This designation is used for several contributors who want their sport stories in the Economist. Experience has taught us that companies usually want their sport sponsorships published prominently, being the reason for a sports category. It now also carries general sport items but only those with direct Namibian relevance. - Ed.
