The University of Fort Hare and its partners, Department of Sport Recreation Arts and Culture, Amothole District Municipality and Raymond Mhlaba Municipality cordially invites you to the Chief Tyali Memorial Run on the 16th of September at Davidson Stadium in Alice. This marathon is in honour and recognition of Chief Tyali’s role in paving the way for the establishment of the University of Fort Hare. He is also recognised as a visionary leader who understood the value of education at a time when many others didn’t. Chief Tyali donated land to the Scotland Missionaries for educational purposes. Lovedale College and Fort Hare University were later built on the land.
