Botswana Railways (BR) Athletics Team leader Mr. Ntombela L. Nkane says participating in the Orange Selibe Phikwe Marathon is imperative. Speaking at the event on August 5 2017, Nkane said the marathon assisted them in their time rankings. The 15-team squad recorded 51 minutes in 2016 while 47 minutes in the 10km run.
