The Moving Ahead Development Agency – a non-profit agency funded by the Gauteng Department: Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation – will host a virtual road race on the 14th of March.
The event theme is ‘Nominate your Covid-19 Hero, Run for your person’.
“It’s imperative that in these challenging times we’re reminded of the fighters, those who continue to celebrate their lives and be with us today,” says Mbali Hlophe, Gauteng MEC for Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation. “It is a gift to run, to have your health, friends and family all in the glorious summer sunshine of the Gauteng Province. We urge our people to lace up, get running and celebrate living and being loved. Because it’s virtual, you can run any route and any time of the day!”
“The three distances, namely 10km, 21km and 45km, should cater for both the novice as well as top athlete,” says MADA CEO Tshepo Mokoena. “You’re welcome to run your chosen route at any time on the Sunday and join all the other runners who will run in support of those who have survived Covid-19. We welcome our ambassadors Gift Kelehe and Lizzy Babili, both of whom will compete in the 45km distance on race day.”
Those interested in running their chosen distance can register online at www.twocities.co.za. with the entry fees as follows: 10km – R60; 21km – R70; R45km – R90. All entries will be managed by EntryNinja (www.entryninja.com). In addition, event merchandise will be available: T-shirts – R80; buffs – R70.
