Corporate Race registration Opens

Ugandans will get an opportunity to  participate in the IAAF World Cross Country Championships Kampala 2017 at Kololo Independence Grounds, on March 26,  through their different corporate  bodies. Corporate Registration was opened  on February 18.

A mass race has been organized for the different corporate bodies that  will be given an opportunity to run on the international track and get international recognition.

“We are giving a chance to the different  corporate bodies to be part of the event.  A corporate team of five runners will be paying sh1m, with the money going towards the facilitation of the national team. We have limited the registration to only 60 teams on a first come, first serve basis,” said the  vice president LOC Domenic Otuchet.

Otuchet  said that there will be a prize for the winning team, which will be a weekend in one of Uganda’s top destination.

“We are trying to help show case Uganda to the world but corporate companies will also enjoy  a weekend out. The package will be for the members who will have competed and it will not be transferable,” explained Otuchet.

Registration for the corporate  is done through email and paying the money to the Uganda Athletics Federation account at Stanbic Bank.

All the interested corporate companies can drop an email at secretariat@iaafkampala2017.org  and copy it to media@iaafkampala2017.org

“It is a race that will be broadcast live and we need to work on the different administrative issues in time for easy planning,” said Otuchet.   .
