#ResolutionRun4th February 2017

Swaziland’s third #ResolutionRun, sponsored by Total Swaziland and organized by Big Game Parks, was our best year yet, with a growth in numbers and support.  This year we had 207 runners, a growth of 146% from our first event in 2015 (84 runners).

Two lovely tweets received this week are testament to positive growth (personal handles left out):

“Heard good reviews about this year’s #ResolutionRun, great improvement on last year.  Next year we join”

“Yes, (Mr X) only had good things to share.  Am in next year 100%”

Held at Hlane Royal National Park, the event aims to promote visitation to north-east Swaziland and to promote healthy outdoor living.  These objectives were well met, with Hlane being fully booked for the event, and other parks in the Lebombo Conservancy seeing a rise in occupancy over this particular weekend.  Further to this, the turnout from across Swaziland, and the Lowveld residents specifically, was astounding – fantastic to see!  We will keep this annual spotlight on this region and continue to give you all a lot to run for. 

A big shout out to our sponsors – Total Swaziland, Swaziland Milling, Parmalat, Galitos, Black Mamba Chilli, Ice Co, Buffalo Soldiers, African Alliance, International Tool Hire, DHL, Dixies and Big Game Parks.  Thank you to all our sponsors for making our #ResolutionRun possible and for assisting in it’s positive growth.

Particular mention is made of AM Consultancy, RSSC, Swazi Trails and Tongaat-Hulett for their strong corporate support of our event – thank you!  It is great to see corporates promoting health and outdoor life in such a positive and tangible manner.
