TOLO VAAL RIVER 2018

City Logistics is sponsoring our very own Tolo Mooketsi from the Klerksdorp branch, to run the 2019 Comrades Marathon.

We sat down with Tolo Mooketsi for a quick Q & A session:

Full Name: Tolo Richard Mooketsi
Date of Birth: 10 Jan 1984
Home town: Mahikeng
Height: 1,77 m
Weight: 49.9 kg
Running started :29 Jul 2017 till present

Where are you from?

I was born in Mahikeng and grow up in Lotlhakane and Skoongezicht. I attend school at Mosenogi primary school, Tselakgosi intermediate school and secondary school at Lapologang until my matric. I wanted to further my studies on sports management and economics, but I never finished. I was raised by both my parents and I’m the oldest of five children.

What sports do you do?

I’m not new on sports, first I was a soccer player and I went to school of excellence and trial at Kaizer Chiefs before I picked up an injury at the age of 21. I had to quit soccer in total, but the love of sport continues. In 2017 I bought a local newspaper, and while I was busy reading I saw an advertisement for the 10km Mandela race and fun walk. I called and register on the race day, after that it’s history. Things become faster down the line, and 1 year 9 months later I’m so excited to say that I’ll be part of the Comrades marathon up run in 2019.

Things you don’t know about Tolo:

1: I’m a Kaizer Chiefs supporter.
2: I’m very close to my family.
3: Favourite music- Vocal, R&B and Gospel.
4: I used to work at MRP before joining City Logistics.
5: I’m taking care of the family after my father passed away.
6: I visit some charities privately.
7: I’m a simple guy who loves reading books.

I respect everyone, and I take care of myself and I respect what I do. I’ve always found the secret is to train, stay fit and treat sport and my job with respect. I want to be a good example to the upcoming generation and for running my body will tell me when to stop, maybe after I have finished my 25th Comrades Marathon.

We will keep you posted on Tolo’s training and preparation for the big event. We are behind him every step of the way…
