42 K Buddy Up Relay Marathon

42K Buddy Up Relay Marathon

Thank you for your interest in participating in ACVV Khayalethu Child and Youth Care Centre’s 42 K Buddy Up Relay Marathon Series: a fundraising project initiated by the Khayalethu boys for playground equipment at the Centre.

Do good and have a great time doing it

When you enter a 42 K Buddy Up Relay Marathon:

  • You empower our boys in realising their goals.
  • You contribute towards providing a safe, child-friendly environment in which our boys will grow.
  • You enjoy a fun-filled morning focussed on healthy competition and camaraderie in a family-friendly environment.

When your organisation enters a 42 K Buddy Up Relay Marathon, there are the additional benefits of promoting your company in a variety of media, and enjoying a morning of successful team-building.

Find out all you need to know

  1. Each event requires 28 participants – two teams of 14.
  2. Each participant will be partnered with a Khayalethu boy to run (or walk) a 3 km leg of the 42 km marathon.
  3. The START and FINISH of each leg is at the gates of ACVV Khayalethu Child and Youth Care Centre, where participants and supporters are able to enjoy entertainment and refreshments, give starters a great send-off and finishers, a warm welcome home.
  • There is an entrance fee of R100 per person.
  • Proceeds from the sales of refreshments will go towards this fundraising project.
  • A fee is charged for the opportunity to erect branding materials at home base and along the marathon route.

We’re hoping to hold a 42 K Buddy Up Relay Marathon on the first weekend of the month, every two months. The start is a 07h00 and the event usually lasts from two to three hours, depending on the pace of  the participants. Ask us about the next available date.
