However, Covid-19 ruined everything, and there are limited races due to the lockdown restrictions.Entries for the 10km run are R50 and R70 on the day of the race. Entries for the 21km are R70 before the race and R90 on race day.Marketing officer Themba Motaung said there would be no prize money as he urged the runners to come in their numbers and test themselves after many months of staying at home doing nothing.

“We are calling on all the runners and clubs to jump at this opportunity and join in the fun. Others gained weight and can do with a race. Others have been training, but had no races to run. This is a chance to test themselves in a competitive race. There is a difference between training and racing. We are targeting at least 200 runners,” he told Sowetan yesterday. headtopics.com

Motaung said they are happy to take late entries and would adhere to all Covid-19 regulations. “As long as the numbers do not exceed 2,000 required outdoors, we will accept the entries,” said Motaung. Read more: Sowetan LIVE »
