The 7th annual event is presented by the Itheko Sport Athletic Club, sponsored by Metropolitan and will take place on Sunday, 14 May 2017 in commemoration of the Cape Town city’s heritage and culture.

In line with the Slave Route Challenge’s function to highlight and honour the stories of the individuals who built this city, Metropolitan’s #IRunThis campaign aims to applause the efforts of key members of the Cape Town community who lead inspirational and successful lives such as radio DJs Carissa Cupido, Maka Tanga and Seano Loots.

“Uplifting and offering support to our community members creates a strong sense of inspiration for a more positive environment. We at Metropolitan are passionate about our South African heritage and encourage communities to unite and celebrate, together”. Says Head of Brand at Metropolitan, Llewellyn Allen.

The race takes runners through the heart of Cape Town on a route specifically designed to pass historically significant landmarks such as The Castle of Good Hope, the Whipping Post, Old Slave Church, the Iziko Slave Lodge and the Slave Tree Plaque.

The 21.1km half marathon, 10km run, 10km big walk and 5km fun run/ walk will kick off at the City Hall at 7am, 7:15am, 7:30am and 7:45am respectively.
