In 2015, the Luka Annual Charity 5km / 10km Fun Walk / Run became a symbol of hope for the Luka Community.

During its inaugural year, the Luka Annual Charity 5km / 10km Run / Walk attracted an impressive number of spectators and participants, some of whom have taken part in major marathons like the Ultimate Human Race, the Comrades' Marathon.

In 2016, the Luka Sports Institute, a non - profit organisation, in association with the Luka Cycling Club, Luka Athletics Club and Athletics Royal Bafokeng, will re-launch the Luka Annual Charity 5km / 10km Fun Walk / Run, which comprised of a 5km fun walk / run and a 10km Race, into a half - marathon, renamed the Luka Cycling & Running Challenge, 21km half marathon, 10km road race and 5km fun walk / run, as well as 5km, 10km, 26.3km and 58km cycling road races

Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela is a struggle giant and an icon of global proportion who transcends all borders and appeals to everyone across all walks of life. His historical association with uMgungundlovu District Municipality contributed and shaped the democratic, modern day South Africa that we live in today. This has made the District Municipality one of the critical nerve centres of the struggle against apartheid.

Nelson Mandela made his last speech at Manaye Hall in Imbali in 1961 and was arrested in Howick before being incarcerated at Robben Island for 27 years. Given that there is no one who better personifies the struggle against the then-government's racist rule than the legendary Mandela, it is for this reason that his historical association with the District Municipality will be coined and immortalized through the Mandela Day Marathon.

The inaugural race was won by Brighton Chipere, who finished the marathon in 2 hours and 12 minutes. The Mandela Day Marathon is an 'up run' that has 8km-long "Struggle Hill", followed by the 2km "Challenge Climb". The race is run on fully paved roads.
