Mandela Day Marathon

8th edition

A tribute to Mandela and a triumph of the human spirit.

The Mandela Day Marathon was initiated in 2012 to honor the life and times of President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

It starts from Arya Samaj Hall (Manayi Hall) in Imbali, where our international icon, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, made his last public speech on 25 March 1961 at the All-in-Africa conference to Nelson Mandela Capture Site where he was arrested outside Howick.
