The Husab Marathon, a Swakop Uranium Foundation-sponsored event will take place on 3 August 2019.
It is both a competitive event and a community fun day, where families can enjoy a day out near the beautiful Namib Naukluft Park.
The winners will be rewarded with unspecified cash and lucky draw prizes.
Transport to the venue will be provided for the runners on Saturday morning from Swakopmund's The Dome at 06h00, the town council building at Arandis from 06h30 and from the taxi rank on Nathanial Maxuilili Street in Kuisebmund, Walvis Bay, from 05h30.
Participants who wish to drive with their vehicles to the entrance of the Husab Mine, off the B2, are welcome to do so. Secure parking will be provided at the starting point of the race.
Entrance is free.
Food and beverages will be on sale at the race start/finishing point, as well as entertainment such as jumping castles and face- painting for children.
