One of the first half marathons in this region for the year, this race has an undulating route with some great views of Joburg. Entries are limited to 6000 and the earlier you enter, the less you pay. This year the Dis-Chem Foundation has pledged to match all voluntary donations from runners to the two charities supported by the race: Lambano Sanctuary and the Namaqua Dog & Donkey Foundation.
An undulating race through the suburbs of Bedfordview and Morning Hill, with a challenging second half. As runners come out through Primrose, they are rewarded with a great view of Johannesburg.
Unique Fact: All entrants will receive a goodie bag including a T-shirt and a Collectors 13th Edition medal for all finishers.
AVOID THE REGISTRATION QUEUES
Also take note that Peak Timing offers a courier service through Lynx Couriers to have your race pack and goody bag delivered to your front door, so you don’t have to queue to register. Simply select this option when registering online.
New Technical T! Following requests last year, every entrant for the half marathon will receive a technical T-shirt thanks to Dis-Chem.
