Collen Makaza Athlete Profile

Collen Makaza, born 25 May 1981, is proudly Zimbabwean and lives in Harare with his fiance Precious, and their sons, Collen Junior and Craig. Collen’s first love was soccer and although whilst growing up he played, he was driven towards running. He is a loyal, committed and passionate man who is dedicated to doing what he can to improve road-running and the development of athletics amongst youngsters in Zimbabwe.

Being “Mr Pace” as he is affectionately known back in his home town of Chitungwiza, (Zimbabwe) he is just that, with a PB 10km time of less than 30 minutes and a marathon time of sub 2H15.
