Tom Jenkins Challenge

November 16 @ 6:00 am

Tom Jenkins Challenge | RW Race Calendar

The 2019 Tom Jenkins Challenge will see the introduction of a single lap 21.1 km route. However, the notorious climb up Meintjieskop remains. The 800m hill was constructed by the Italian POW during World War 2. The race ends with an easy down run/walk for both 10 km and 21.1 km participants.

Floating trophies for the largest, fastest and jolliest buses make this a race to show pride in your club and have fun!
Accept the Challenge!

The Tom Jenkins Challenge is part of the Discovery Vitality Run Series.
