Dear Vic Falls Marathon Athletes

The 2013 Econet Victoria Falls Marathon and Half Marathon on the 14 July was excellent. Running in July, a bit earlier in the year than previous events, due to the UNWTO conference in August, proved to be a winner - cool weather, almost too cool (saw some fall residents wearing jerseys...most unusual!).

For the runners, it was great, even the slow guys were not getting baked in the hot Zambezi Sun. Numbers were slightly higher than last year, the biggest increase was in the international "sports tourists", who had travelled from all over to come to Zimbabwe and have fun! In true Zimbabwe style, the town river and park were clean and very beautiful. Some runners even saw game along the route, Impala, Kudu and Warthog to name a few, there were also some nice bull Elephants near waterpoint 1(Off the road at race time, ON the road at about 06h15 but they were soon ably moved on by the organisers and ZIMPARKS (we have now added "elephant herdsman" to our CV's).

There is NO OTHER EVENT on the planet where one can run in the spray of the Victoria Falls, in a World Heritage Site, see game on route and finish off with a spectacular sunset cruise on the famed Zambezi River.

The Full marathon was won in a time of 2:19:11 by NKOSIYAZI SIBANDA who won last years full marathon as well and bettered his time from last year, and the first lady home was SAMUKELISO MOYO in a time of 2:54:44.

The Half marathon race was finished in a time of 1:05:50 by WIRIMAI JUWAWO. The ladies race was won by CONSTANCE NYASANGO in 1:18:56.

The Results for the FULL and HALF Marathon can be viewed on our website, to view them click here . We invite you to peruse them and let us know if there is anything amiss.

We are also uploading some images onto our website that were taken on the route, which you are welcome to upload (FOC). There are high res versions available which you can access by following this link. The TV insert , on Supersport is due to be aired please see timings on table below.

Things are looking great for 2014, with plenty of intrest from overseas sports tourists. Regional athletes too are making use of this event, to test themselves and train while some are just having fun running the falls for 4 years in a row now. There is plenty of hidden talent out there - one of the aims of the organizers and sponsors for 2014 so to get these people out of their far flung areas to the event (money is still tight at the moment in Zimabawe). Who knows, there may be a World Champion for Zimbabwe, somewhere in the highlands of Manicaland!

Get training for 2014!

The 2014 Event date is yet to be confirmed, we will let you know as soon as it as been confirmed.

The organizers of the event would like to thank the sponsors - all of them - what a great job they did, cool drinks, music, snacks and great motivation to our runners - well done to all.
We would also like to say a big thank you to Environment Africa for doing such a wonderful job of cleaning up after the race

We hope you enjoyed the Marathon as much as we did and look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Best regards,
Victoria Falls Marathon Team
