Run 21 Trail Run promises excitement

Spectators at the Lady Khama Charitable Trust (LKCT) 2017 Run 21 Trail Run are in for some fun at the 5th edition on April 9 this year, chairperson Marcus ter Haar said during the launch of the event at the National Stadium this past Tuesday.

According to Ter Haar, for this year’s edition, the organisers have added some extra activities to the Lady K. Wellness Arena (LKWA), an “in-house” sport platform for different sporting activities under one roof.

Ter Haar said they try to make the event different from others races in Botswana to bring an exciting experience to the supporters.

“The LKWA provides a platform where sport enthusiasts’ have access to participate and explore alternative sporting activities under one roof for free,” said Ter Haar.

Among others, spectators and supporters are anticipated to sample sporting activities such as the Chen style Taichi as well as yoga and aerobics.

Ter Haar said since the event started in 2013, it has grown considerably in both the runners and spectators’ participation. 

 In the main event runners will compete in the 5km fun race/walk, 10km and 21.1 km race.

Ter Haar said the race is run on main roads as well as dirt roads at different points and asked drivers and runners to exercise caution.

Proceeds from the event go into the coffers of the Lady Khama Charitable Trust. 

Registration for the event is already open and will end on April 2.  It can be done online at or at the LKCT  offices.
