Slave Route Challenge Half Marathon & 10km Run/Walk

March 31 @ 6:30 am - 5:00 pm

More than just a race, the Slave Route Challenge honours the heritage and culture of Cape Town, as well as the dispossessed individuals who contributed significantly to the development of the city and South Africa. The race takes entrants through the heart of Cape Town on a route specifically designed to pass historically significant landmarks such as The Castle of Good Hope, the Whipping Post, Old Slave Church, the Iziko Slave Lodge and the Slave Tree Plaque. This event is presented by the Itheko Sport Athletic Club, supported by Metropolitan as the official sponsor.

The race was voted Race of The Month and Race of the Year by Western Province Athletics in 2018.

Medals are awarded to all finishers and prizes to category winners. There is a lucky draw.

Pre-entries, on slaveroute.co.za, close on 29 March.
