Fun-Filled Sunday 10km Challenge

by | Jun 22, 2007

There will be plenty of activities to keep spectators at the SPAR Mercury Women’s 10 & 5km Challenge entertained as the runners and walkers go about the business of either earning Grand Prix points, the prize money up for grabs for a placing or simply enjoying the benefits of good healthy exercise. 

Organisers have confirmed the lively all male band “Afritude” to head the entertainment line up on June 24.

The much traveled group has been together for over twelve years, and has built up a loyal following with their wide repertoire including Funk, Rock, Reggae, Jazz and Pop hits from 60’s to present day.
East Coast Radio has confirmed a couple of their top DJ personalities will be contributing to the music and entertainment.
Organisers will be providing a ‘Mist Tunnel’ to cool down hot and bothered runners on race day, where you can treat yourself to a gentle stream of cooling mist.
According to Vanessa Brisset, Project Director at Community Projects, the popular ‘Kiddies Corner’ will again be a popular feature again at R5.00, to amuse and keep the little ones occupied, and each child will receive their own goody bag.
Corporate sites are still available, where companies can allow their lady entrants to relax, and provide breakfast for their runners after they’ve crossed the finish line.
Companies can bring their own catering, or take advantage of the Sahara Stadium caterers who offer catering options at very competitive prices. Menus are available on request. Bookings can be made with Leonie at 083 775 6359.
In addition to the entertainment laid on by Afritude and ECR, the kiddies corner and the corporate sites there’ll be lots for the runners and their supporters to do.
You’ll be able to buy a wide variety of food and drink, relax on the grass with your family and watch the prize-giving – you could even bring a basket and enjoy a leisurely picnic in the sun.
There’ll also be exciting giveaways and prizes including a lucky draw for a year’s worth of groceries valued at R12 000 from SPAR!
Hurry to the Sahara Stadium to register, where the Lifestyle and Registration Expo runs until Saturday 23 June, 2007.
The entrance fee for the 10km is R35 for licensed runners and R40 for unlicensed runners, while the 5km walk/run costs R35 to enter.
