The People’s Race will once again accommodate 600 athlete’s on Saturday 2 November 2019, the night prior to the 26th Soweto Marathon. Orlando West High School in the Vilakazi Precinct, in Soweto will house and feed the successful applicants from around the country in the race’s third Runners Village CSI offering.

Soweto Marathon Trust Chairman, Sello Khunou said that this part of the race is undoubtebly the most heart-warming;

“Over the years the Soweto Marathon has attracted many runners from all over the country and the world, and we have realised that a certain percentage of runners are unable to pay for accommodation due to circumstances beyond their control, be it economic reasons or disadvantaged backgrounds. To reduce their burden, the organisers will be providing accommodation to the first 600 successful applicants, to enable them to be part of the race. I would like to thank Old Mutual, Jonsson Work Wear and Sowetan, among others, for once again providing a much-valued partnership with us in this regard.”
