OVER 500 athletes will compete for honours in the third edition of the Harare Exide Marathon at Old Georgians Sports Club on Sunday.

It will be the third edition of the Exide marathon with the venue being Old Georgians Sports Club.

The annual event is powered by Exide Chloride battery manufacturers in conjunction with Harare Athletics club.

Over 500 athletes will compete in the 5 km, 10 km, 21 km and 42 km races.

The tournament roared into life last week with outstanding quartet of Ngoni Makusha, Tapiwa Chineka, Gellen Muwishi and Kudzanai Chiborise sealing their place at the Africa senior Athletics championships.

On the other hand the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe (NAAZ) is sending a 52 member delegation for the Botswana National Championships in Francistown, this weekend.

The regional event will also give NAAZ an opportunity to finalise the squad for other major international events.
