A charitable initiative aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle, physical fitness, and teamwork, the Bank Windhoek Relay will see four participants per team compete in five categories, namely; men, women, veterans, schools, and mixed groups. Each team, comprising four participants, will be required to walk or run a total of 20 kilometres - each participant will complete five kilometres.
The entry fee per adult team is N$560, while school groups will only be required to pay N$280. After the event, the money raised will be donated to various charitable initiatives countrywide.
“Besides promoting the importance of physical activity in our daily lives, the Bank Windhoek Relay is also a team-building exercise. We are therefore encouraging all companies, schools, and individuals to enter teams to partake in this fun-filled event," said Bank Windhoek's Executive Officer of Marketing and Corporate Communication Services, Jacquiline Pack.
The Tannery has been selected to host the Bank Windhoek Relay due to its breath-taking scenery and location. The Tannery will host its monthly market during the Bank Windhoek Relay, which is well-known known for its artisan food, handcrafted goods, and selected wines, and provides the ideal opportunity for corporate entertainment and team building.
The Tannery is also an excellent venue for children to stay active. There are various activities, including its bike track, jumping castles, and climbing walls. “Participants are not allowed to bring in their own drinks, and can purchases drinks from The Tannery.
