Applications For Unogwaja 2019 Are Open!

** To apply for Crew, please click here. **

We are looking for ambassadors to take the Unogwaja story forward and build its legacy, and we would not recommend applying to participate unless you have a deep understanding on what Unogwaja is all about.

Remember that physical fitness is also essential, as the journey includes cycling approximately 200km per day for 10 days, followed by a tough Ultra Marathon. You must be able to maintain a 20 – 25km/h average cycling speed for approximately 200km per day, and you must have the running competency to qualify for the Comrades Marathon. Failure to qualify for the Comrades will deem you unfit for the Unogwaja Challenge – you will forfeit your entry (no refund) and you will not be able to join the 2019 Challenge.

Please familiarise yourself with the entry, fees and fundraising requirements, as well as the deadlines, before you apply. CLICK HERE for more.

This is a significant commitment and we are excited that you are committed to taking this first step. Please complete the form below, and start your application process today.
