THE ROTARY CLUB OF MBABANE MBULUZI, SWAZILAND IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS YEAR THE EVENT IS BEING HELD ON SUNDAY
7th AUGUST 2016. The calls asking how to join in the fun have started and companies are preparing for the biggest
corporate participation event in Swaziland! The Rotary club of Mbabane Mbuluzi would like to extend to you the
opportunity to take part in this great event and help raise money to benefit people & communities less privileged
than ourselves. Join us for the 11th edition of this great walk.
Once again, this year the challenge will be to walk to the top of Sibebe, (admiring the wonderful views en route) and down again; water is provided to all walkers and we encourage all walkers to carry at least 1 litre of water with them. Prize giving and breakfast will be provided at the bottom next to the Mbuluzi Clinic. In an effort to minimize the impact to the environment the Rotary Club will impose a participation limit of 5,000 walkers (please register early).
Registration for participation will take place on the 23rd and 30th July 2016. The registration will take place at the Portuguese Club between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm on both dates. There will be NO registration permitted on the day of the event.
You have the opportunity to support this excellent event in a number of ways:
STANDARD CORPORATE PARTICIPATION - enrolling a maximum of 6 members from your organisation, per team, to form part of your "corporate team" which can walk up Sibebe. The entry fee per corporate team is E 1,200-00. Each participant will receive a "Sibebe Survivor" t-shirt, and participation certificate and breakfast/refreshments on the day of the event. Corporate teams are eligible for various recognition awards and will be thanked in the press after the event.
Various prizes will be on offer for teams of WALKERS and individuals. This year the prizes and adjudication will be carried out by our Title Sponsor, Nedbank Swaziland.
Sibebe is a granite mountain in Swaziland, located 10km from the capital city Mbabane. It is the second-largest monolith in the world and the largest exposed pluton,  rising 350m above the valley of the Mbuluzi River. It is also known as "Bald Rock".
The Mbabane-Mbuluzi Rotary Club organises an annual fund-raising walk up Sibebe Rock called the Sibebe Survivor. Several thousand people take part each year. Sibebe also gives its name to a lager produced by Swaziland Beverages, called Sibebe Premium Lager.
PARTICIPATION AS AN INDIVIDUAL - you can also enrol to participate as an individual.
Each individual is expected to raise a minimum of E 200-00 to be eligible for a t-shirt, participation
certificate and breakfast on the day of the event.
SPONSORSHIP - All funds raised by the Rotary Club of Mbabane Mbuluzi are spent on charity causes that meet Rotary's criteria of sustainability and maximum assistance to those most in need. We appreciate and request any companies that want to sponsor the event to contact the organisers.
RECOGNITION - Various awards and prizes are on offer for the following categories:
LARGEST CORPORATE ENTRY, BEST TEAM NAME, BEST DRESSED TEAM(S), BEST TEAM SPIRIT and others.
The route is from Mbuluzi High School (plenty of parking) where the walkers will start. The route climbs up the hills to a plateau with the spectacular views of Mbabane and surrounding areas. The return journey follows closely along the up route. For those not wanting to walk the full distance, turn around points exist along the route. The full route is around 12 Km from start to finish.
