Budget Rent a Car recently announced their sponsorship of the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon that took place on 6 November 2016 at the FNB Stadium in Soweto.
Over 10 years of its existence, The Old Mutual Soweto Marathon, also known as “The People’s Race” is widely considered as a bucket list item for many South African runners, because not only is it a race, but also a historical tour of Soweto. The memorable experience takes you into the historic heart of Soweto where you will run past some of the iconic sites like the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, Walter Sisulu Square, Regina Mundi Catholic Church and Vilakazi street – the only street in the world that was once home to two Nobel Peace Laureates – Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
As the official car rental partner to the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon, Budget Rent a Car provided official lead vehicles for each distance as well as support vehicles for the runners, media and the race organisers to ensure that all the transportation needs are fulfilled.
Rainer Gottschick Chief Executive Officer of Budget Rent a Car said, “At Budget we stay committed to providing the best fleet of cars and our partnership with the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon is proof of our continued support within the running community.
Fred Lebow once said, “The marathon is a charismatic event. It has everything. It has drama. It has competition. It has camaraderie. It has heroism. Not every jogger dreams of being an Olympic champion, but every jogger dreams of finishing a marathon”.Remember that when the going gets tough Budget will be there to carry you through to the finishing line.
