About Kgosi Malope II Marathon

Kgosi Malope II Marathon is the brainchild of Stilistics Sportainment. Realizing that Kanye (one of the biggest and oldest villages in Botswana) does not have an annual big sporting event, we decided to come up with an event that Batswana, especially those in GaNgwaketse area can look up to on an annual basis.

We believe that other than encouraging people to participate in healthy lifestyles events/activities, the Marathon will provide a positive, rewarding way to generate local business, boost the local economy, promote local tourism for the scenic Kanye Village and shine a regional and national spotlight on the host village.

About Kanye

Located 83 kilometres (52 mi) south-west of the capital, Gaborone and the eighth largest village in Botswana, Kanye is the administrative centre of the Southern District, with a population of 45,200. It is the traditional capital of the Ngwaketse tribe, who first settled in the area in the 1790s.

Kgosi Malope II is the head of Ngwaketse and has been very active in promoting sports and healthy lifestyle in Kanye. He has spearheaded the recent Kgosi Malope Cycling Challenge 2020 and many other sporting and cultural activities.
