Online Entry Events
The following events are open for online entries now.
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.
The Randburg STREET MILE is the first for this type of event to be taking place in the Northern suburbs of Johannesburg. It was birthed in the heart of RBH PRO John Neale three years ago ! Harriers Chairman Graham Block promises to deliver yet another exciting event in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg, set in the high standard of excellence and service as usual. It promises to be an amazing event filled with loads of fun for the entire family and includes a 10km street challenge with a 5km fun run finished off with the Family as well as the DOGGY mile.
The KPMG Relay on 24 September 2016 is a fantastic way to ignite team spirit and put teamwork into action, while having plenty of fun. Running teams of four and walking teams of three will compete in male, female and mixed categories over a 5km flat course along the Umgeni River and the Durban Promenade.
This is a great opportunity for corporates, universities, clubs, schools, family and friends to battle it out in order to claim bragging rights as the fastest team in Durban.
Come and enjoy a festive atmosphere before, during and after the race with music, entertainment, delicious food stalls, a beer garden, a Kidz Kay obstacle race and a supervised children's play area. All fitness levels and all ages welcome.
