It’s fun, it’s exciting and it’s unique – the Town Lodge Business Night Relay returns to Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday evening for another round of corporate team building with 5 runners or 3 walkers each completing a 3.5km route within the magnificent settings of the city’s landmark stadium.
Open to local companies, sports clubs or social groups, this popular event has brought something new to the city with the introduction of a monthly social winter sports series which brings fun and excitement back into the workplace.
“The new 3.5km route which sees the teams running along level 2 and level 5 of the stadium has brought a new and unique dimension to the relay,” says Series director Michael Zoetmulder of Zsports Events NPC. “When standing in the transition area outside the World of Windows VIP lounge, teams are able to see the participants running above and below them which has boosted the excitement of the event.”
Donne Wright, who was taking part for the Herbert Hurd Primary School Teachers/Parents team, had the following to say, “The new course was exciting as there were lots of turns and various terrain. It was tempting to stop and admire the stadium when spotting the field but was equally distracted by the beautiful city lights surrounding the stadium.”
Racing starts at 6pm on Tuesday night with a once off pre-registration essential to secure a Series number. Costs are just R500 for the 5-person running team or R300 for the 3-person walking team and all team members are included in the nightly lucky draws which include prizes ranging from a Caltex R500 fuel voucher, an accommodation voucher at any City Lodge Hotels Group establishment nationally or the R1000 cash lucky prize.
