Constantia Village K-Way 15km and 5km Fun Run – Cancelled

UPDATE to the Statement on the Constantia Village K-Way 15km Road Race:
Dear Runner, Spectator and Helper,
We have been informed by the City authorities that our race permit has been withdrawn, due to the #capefire.
It is unfortunate that the race will not go ahead this weekend.
We will be engaging with WPA to assist with a possible date in the future and will advise accordingly.
For those who have already entered, we will be in touch in the next week regarding entry fees already paid.
Again, we wish the best for the efforts of our firefighters and other volunteers.

ABAX Investments Milkwood Run

This popular race is embedded in the fabric of the coastal village of Kommetjie; known for its friendly culture. When Harfield Harriers took over the race, it was moved to the sweeping Cape Peninsula coastal stretch of Soetwater, and it helps to conserve an area rich in biodiversity.

The route follows a figure of eight between the villages of Kommetjie and Scarborough, along a richly decorated coastline. It’s a challenging, but stunning course. There’s also a 10km and a 5km.

Unique Fact: Indigenous saplings are awared to finishers instead of medals, and they’re encouraged to plant the trees (care instructions are supplied). Also in keeping with conservation, littering is strongly prohibited.

Starting times: 21.1km: 6:30am; 10km: 7:10am; 5km: 7:15am.

Pre-entries will be available Sportsmans Warehouse stores (Rondebosch, Sea Point, Tokai and Tygervalley) until 12 February, or at www.milkwoodrun.co.za, which will close on 19 February 2015. Entries are limited to 2000. No entries on race day.
