The 2019 edition of the Hangana Hake Run and Ride which featured a 42km marathon, 21km half marathon, 10km run as well as the 90km mountain bike road race, 21km mountain bike race and the 5km kiddies ride took place last weekend between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.
Over 1000 participants took part in the event which saw 800 entries last year.

Salomo David won the men’s 42km marathon. He finished in a time of 2:31:07 a few minutes ahead of Kristof Ndungawho was second with a time of 2:39:33. Martin Ntina clocked 2:40:39 and finished third.

“It was a surprise as I did not expect it. I did not expect it because to be a veteran and beating the runners in the open category is not an easy thing. I am proud of the hard work I put in. Thank you God I did it,” said David.

The women’s marathon was won by Ottilie Aimwata in a time of 2:56:23. She finished ahead of Risa Dreyer (2:57:06) and Rakela Akukothela (3:19:00) who were second and third respectively.

“I feel very good for winning the race because I have won the marathon now twice in a row as I also won it last year. I am happy with my time because this year I finished the race under three hours compared to last year where when my time was over three hours,” said Aimwata after the race.
