ENTRIES are open for the 30th annual Durban SPAR Women’s 10/5km Challenge which takes place on Sunday 23 June. This year the race route remains the same as last year, starting off in Masabalala Yengwa Avenue opposite the outer fields of Jonsson Kings Park Rugby Stadium, which is also the finish.
To celebrate 30 years on, SPAR will award the winner of this race R30,000, as well as the usual cash category prizes. Elite runners participating in the Women’s 10km Grand Prix Series will be vying to increase their standings on the leaderboard. Currently Namibian runner Helalia Johannes (Nedbank) is in poll position having won the Port Elizabeth race on 4 May in a regional record time of 31.50 minutes.
Participants will receive a breakfast pack upon completion of the event, and are encouraged to remain after the race and enjoy the entertainment on offer, with some big lucky draw prizes up for grabs to mark the occasion. Entry fees are R145 for a 10km non-licensed entrant, which will include a temp licence, R120 for a 10km licensed entrant and R120 for all 5km entrants.
