The great Tata Nelson Mandela once said " Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire.It has the power to unite the people in a way that little else does. It speaks to the youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than Goverments in breaking down racial barriers".

It is some of this great words upon which Windhoek City Runners club's foundation is build on. To inspire, to unite, and to create hope to our society.
