Sanlam Namibia has launched the first ever Sanlam Coastal Marathon at their head office in Windhoek. 

The marathon is aimed at unearthing athletic talent in Namibia, creating a platform for athletes to craft their skills while at the same time promoting health and fitness for all, Sanlam marketing and communications manager, Hilaria Graig, said at the launched. 

“The Sanlam Coastal Marathon is like no other. It is the only marathon linked to an elite marathon in Africa, the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon. The winners of the marathon will not only receive a cash price of N$15 000 but are also guaranteed automatic participation in the IAAF Gold Label Status Sanlam Cape Town Marathon taking place in September,” she said.  

She added that the Coastal Marathon will become an annual event which Sanlam promises will only get bigger and better each year. 

Prior to introducing this marathon, Sanlam has been sending athletes such as Commonwealth Gold medalist Helalia Johannes, Mynhyardt Kauanivi, Ndehimona Ekondjo and Uveni Nawa Kugongelwa among others, to the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon where they have performed outstandingly.
