The Old Eds 21 began in 1980 and has become one of the most sought after races to compete in. It is an ideal race for those who ran Comrades to start their preparation for City to City. The race is run through the tree lined suburbs of Houghton, Illovo and Killarney, and although originally a one lap race, due to road closures and security being more pronounced in some places, it is now run over a two lap course. The race has grown in popularity over the years, and now attracts upwards of 3000 runners with the 10 km race now being part of the day. It is an ideal course for the novice or beginner to run as there are very few hills. The run in is a gentle downhill run to ease the aches and pains at the end! The day is usually blessed with fine spring weather.
This Woman Day Cycling event is in it's 15th year and is presented to raise funds for the Sungardens and Mamelodi Hospice. The event promises to be better than ever. It will comprise the usual 110km & 70km road races, a 10km fun ride and a free 1km kiddies race
Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela is a struggle giant and an icon of global proportion who transcends all borders and appeals to everyone across all walks of life. His historical association with uMgungundlovu District Municipality contributed and shaped the democratic, modern day South Africa that we live in today. This has made the District Municipality one of the critical nerve centres of the struggle against apartheid.

Nelson Mandela made his last speech at Manaye Hall in Imbali in 1961 and was arrested in Howick before being incarcerated at Robben Island for 27 years. Given that there is no one who better personifies the struggle against the then-government's racist rule than the legendary Mandela, it is for this reason that his historical association with the District Municipality will be coined and immortalized through the Mandela Day Marathon.

The inaugural race was won by Brighton Chipere, who finished the marathon in 2 hours and 12 minutes. The Mandela Day Marathon is an 'up run' that has 8km-long "Struggle Hill", followed by the 2km "Challenge Climb". The race is run on fully paved roads.
