Maritzburg Marathon

Well done to The Witness / Maritzburg City Marathon for another successful Marathon which was held on Sunday 23rd February 2014. The weather was great and the number of runners that registered was amazing. The entrants enjoyed fantastic music, fun, laughter, dance and their awesome medals.

Community Chest would like to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to all officials of this phenomenal event in selecting The Chest as one of their official “Charity of Choice”. All proceeds will benefit the 76 Community Impact Partners supported by Community Chest in the fields of Health, Welfare & Education. Special Thanks to John Hall for all his hard work and love towards the work of Chest.

Special thanks as well for allowing to The Chest to Facilitate the Candle Ceremony which was held on the 20th February 2014. This special ceremony was to celebrate lighting the official Marathon Flame. The Flame is the official symbol of the Association of Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) and is lit at the Tomb of the Marathon Warriors at which the marathon distance was launched for the first modern Olympics in 1896.
