UAP Ndakaini Marathon

The UAP Ndakaini Marathon started in 2004 under the auspices of the Ndakaini Dam Environmental conservation Association (NDEKA). The 21 KM Marathon goes round the entire Ndakain Dam.

The objective of the Marathon is to tap new talents from the whole Republic and promote Ndakaini as a sporting tourist venue. NDEKA has been encouraging sports and athletics in particular for the sake of our youth who may eventually make a career in athletics. We therefore encourage everybody to participate in this year's event
