Rebuilding Knysna with Maserati and the Ultimate Multisport Challenge

As the Western Cape braced itself for the worst storm in 30 years on Wednesday, 7 June, no-one could have envisaged the destruction that would be left behind in the wake of the wildfire that raged through Knysna for 48 hours.

The town and community which has played host to the Ultimate Multisport Challenge for 8 years has suffered an incredible ordeal. The Maserati BIG5 Challenge has therefor decided to lay down the gauntlet of a different kind to participants: Raising funds to assist in rebuilding Knysna.

Momentum Aims to Make Winter Warmer with the Momentum Knysna Forest Marathon Blanket Run

Momentum as co-sponsor of the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival will once again be donating 2,000 quality, full-size, extra fleecy blankets to the charities and communities supported by the festival.  The idea is that the blankets will be used by runners at the start of the Momentum Cape Times Knysna Forest Marathon and then gathered up to be distributed locally after the race.

The Forest Marathon, one of SA’s most sought after running events has a dramatic start in the forest and spectacular natural scenery along the route.

The early start in the heart of the forest is bitterly cold.  The first 2,000 runners to arrive are given blankets.  Late-comers are encouraged to make friends and share – the blankets are certainly big enough for a few lean athletes to huddle under.

Support the blanket drive by bringing along your own winter warmers to help those who need it most. Collection boxes will be setup at the Marathon registration marquee as well as the race start.
