On 1 May 2015 a journey on foot from Cape Town to Pietermaritzburg began in conjunction with the original bicycle journey inspired by Phil Masterton-Smith. The on-foot party left 30 days prior to the Comrades Marathon and the bicycle team left with 10 days to go. They met up the day before Comrades to enter Pietermaritzburg together.

Unogwaja represents a message of hope for everyone and we want everyone to be able to part of it be it cycling, on foot or just supporting the Light Fund.

This is the start of a long and important journey, that over time can bring together the whole nation. Something we can call our own, where we can stand next to each other and be proud of what we are trying to achieve.

We are currently focusing our limited resources on next year’s Unogwaja Challenge 2016 as well as the formation of The Unogwaja Charitable Trust.

With these important bases in place we will advise on how the principle of Unogwaja on foot will continue and involve more people across South Africa.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch on info@unogwaja.com if you have any queries.
