run4love

My name is Rose Mentink and I am a runner from The Netherlands.
Together with some of my running friends I came up with run on Octber 4. The reason we want to run is violence on the world right now. We figured: runners are happy peaceful people and they are all over the world.
If they all run at noon on the same day and make that a run4love we have runners all over the world in every timezone focussing on worldwide love. So I wrote a blog about is and it is going all over the world.
I am hoping yu will read it too and share it with local runners.The blog is written in Dutch, but I translated it in English too: http://stoerevrouwensporten.nl/blogs/run4love/

The Brauhaus Mountain Trail Run

5km Race
The 5km route (fun run) is for the whole family with most of the run on jeep track on a beatiful, scenic game farm.

12km Race
The 12km race is well suited for the novice runner or road junkies who would like to cross over to the other side!!!!! The route is on good paths most of the time with no serious hills. There will be two water points on this circular route and lots of good German beer at the end.

45km Race
The 45km route is a point to point mountain route. This is definitely not for the novice runner with 90% of the run on a mountain ridge. Definite ankle twisters if you are not well prepared for off road running.

Each competitor will receive a Brauhaus Beer mug which they can either fill with one complementary beer or coldrink and the competitors of the 45km will receive an additional commemorative Brauhaus quick dry shirt.

Starting times: 45km: 4am; 12km: 7am; 5km: 7:15am.

Pre-entries, available on www.ndorfin.co.za, close one week before the race. Entries are limited for the 45km to 100 runners (no late entries). You can enter the 12km or 5km on race day.
