Extreme running in Gautrain Festival of Running

THE countdown has started to a unique historic event, arguably the first of its kind in a South African sport stadium and one that is set to reshape the mixed usage of cricket facilities and enhance outdoor adventure walking and running – the Gautrain Festival of Running.

It will be hosted by SuperSport Park in Centurion on April 7 and 8.

The festival will commence on Friday April 7, when a corporate relay that can lure a capacity of 1 200 competitors, or 300 teams, will start at 10am. All the participants among the 1 200 will receive medals and the 300 teams will each pay a R1 500 entry fee.

On Saturday April 8, the festival will kick off from 7am to 7.45am, with a family fun run limited to 500 participants.

The ‘pram-walk’ is destined to be another drawcard on the Saturday. Some of the other, many attractions to the two-day event include an endurance event and an extreme relay event.

Clubs, companies or individuals interested in signing up or enlisting for the event can contact Joubert on [email protected], or visit the Multiply Titans website on www.titans.co.za.
