Results Final (XLS)


Shaliaxwe and Armas-Namupala are the Rössing virtual marathon champions

History was made this past weekend, when Jeremia Shaliaxwe ran his first 42km marathon event, during the Rössing marathon- virtual run and emerged victorious in 02:19:59.

Alina Armas-Namupala for the sixth time also won the 42km ladies-open category, crossing the line in 02:51:01.

Both athletes will receive a prize of N$10 000 and a development bonus of N$20 000.

A total of over N$90 000 will be awarded to winners in various categories.

“I am extremely excited to record my first marathon event as a winner – as this was not an easy run at all.

“I ran in Windhoek with a lot of hills, the weather was not so friendly and had a lot of vehicles on the road but I kept motivating myself especially when my teammate fell out and I had to run all by myself,” said the joyful Shaliaxwe.

Armas-Namupala also had this to say “I trained for this event since December last year and looked forward to a physical event.

“I am happy that despite the covid-19 pandemic and its challenges the organisers made sure there is an event for us to participate in. It was not an easy race at all but discipline throughout was key.

“The roads were extremely busy but I also had a team that guided me throughout,” she said.

Armas-Namupala congratulated all the runners, saying “We are all winners from this race and I want to encourage you, never give up because next year you might be the one to scoop the prize,” she said. The 30th marathon event was for the first time held virtually, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and attracted over 300 participants.

Rössing Uranium’s manager Corporate Communications Daylight Ekandjo, congratulated all the winner, noting that “We knew from the onset that this was not going to be an easy run for our athletes who are used to coming to Swakopmund and run in a cooler weather condition and the road terrain does not have hills. We are indeed proud of you for being brave and completing your race, despite the challenges faced.

“We take note of the challenges experienced by some of the runners, but we are so proud that for 30 years Rössing has been promoting healthy lifestyles and wellbeing in our nation, more so during this trying period we are facing as a country,” she said.

“We are hopeful that 2022 will allow us to host a physical event again.”
