At Lafarge Zambia, health and safety is our core value thus, the safety of our nation, participants and Partners is of paramount importance to us. That is why management reached at this difficult decision to cancel the 7th edition of the marathon this year.
This decision was made following the guidance of the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization on the status of Covid-19, which is expected to be with us for the foreseeable future, as we embrace social distancing and masking up coined as the “new normal”.
However, all the LLM participants are urged to continue training and keep fit in the new normal as we prepare for the 2021 edition. We have hope and believe that this will pass and we will be able to cement our fitness together next year.
