The Econet 2019 Victoria Falls marathon annual event that took place the 7th of 2019 had the STAR Agriculture students anxiously waiting as they had taken almost 7 months preparing for the race. They got an opportunity to share the track with thousands of people from across the world, in the race for a healthy Africa.
As physical development is one of our pillars at STAR Leadership Academy, the students participated also to demonstrate the attributes of a great, energetic leader.
“It was more than just a marathon race, it felt like a leadership battlefield,” uttered the exhausted STAR student who had finished the 21km race.
Despite the agonizing race, it was a worthwhile pain of success and experience, with the proud participants showcasing their athletic potential to the world. They broke a new ground in the history of the Academy by scooping more than 30 medals in the 21km, relay and 7,5km races, to set a challenge for the upcoming leaders.
At STAR Leadership Academy we believe that the body, mind and soul contribute to a leader’s drive hence we encourage our students to stay active in physical development activities, especially marathons, because they keep leaders robust and ready to tackle anything that comes their way with a positive attitude.
STAR Leadership Academy is a training ground for Zimbabwe’s rising leaders. We are raising Africa’s Future Leaders through Servant Leadership, Tenacity, Accountability & Responsibility.
