Diacore Marathon 2020
The Diacore Marathon includes a 42.2km Marathon, 21.1km half marathon, 10km race and a 4km fun run for the whole family. The marathon is an incredibly fun day out for the entire family with great activities such as Zumba, water slides, stage performances, food courts and plenty of refreshments. As an AIMS and IAAF certified event the Diacore Gaborone Marathon is a qualifier for the Commonwealth and Olympic games.
It is also widely renowned as one of the flattest and fastest routes in the region. In 2016, the marathon created the Diacore Gaborone Marathon running program which features up to ten of Botswana’s elite long distance runners. The team has since gone on to conquer podiums all across the nation through to Soweto in South Africa and of course their home course of the Diacore Gaborone Marathon. The people of Botswana await with bated breath to see how the runners will perform at the 2018 event and ultimately in Tokyo 2020 which stands as the principle goal.
