The Diacore Gaborone Marathon is now offering a 1 Million Pula Prize

In an unprecedented move, Diacore Gaborone Marathon (about 10 miles from the South African border) kicks off the year with a groundbreaking reward, calling on the fastest runners worldwide. It is with great enthusiasm that Diacore announces that 1 million pula ($105,000US) will be up for grabs for the first runner to complete the 42.2km Marathon in under 2 hours and 08 minutes. This is a monumental move as it will not only put the current Diacore Gaborone Marathon 42.2km record of 2 hours and 17 minutes into contention, but is also sure to attract elite runners from across the world.
