This is not an event. And we are not event organisers

I understand it is not a competition, but an act of citizenship. The focus is not on cycling or running to win. The focus is on people. All participants in the Challenge will be giving some of themselves in order to make it happen, and they should act as a group/team.

It is a journey towards a better world, built collectively.

How do you think you will deal with adversity or things that don’t meet with your expectations?

By being respectful and understanding. I am fairly easygoing when it comes to that. I think adversity is to be overcome and that dialogue is fundamental. Problems may occur in every plan so instead of getting frustrated in face of initial expectations, what I seek is to come up with alternatives (Plan B) to achieve the goal.

Why I am ready for The Unogwaja Challenge 2017:

I’ve run and cycled for three years. In addition to these workouts, I do weight training at the gym. I have done all regular medical checkups and all is well with my health. I like to take part in longer races (trail run ultramarathons) that require physical and mental strength. My workouts are targeted at these kinds of activity; which means I do believe I’ve got the physical conditions and endurance to participate in this journey.
