The closing date for entries to take part in the inaugural Relay Against Racism race has been extended to Friday 27 May.

Due to great interest in the family Fun Walk, the organisers, Cycle of Life, have decided to extend the closing date for entries.

The dress code has also been changed from black and white sportswear to full colour.

“Many participants requested that we change the dress code to full-colour to further enhance the key objectives of this initiative, which we fully support,” the organisers say.

People’s Post is the official media sponsor of the event taking place at the Green Point Athletics Stadium on Saturday 28 May.

The Relay Against Racism event is a 22-lap family and corporate fun walk around the track and represents one lap for each year of South Africa’s democracy aiming to unite all people against all forms of racism, xenophobia and related intolerances.

More importantly, the event aims to bring together people from all walks of life to promote a better understanding and trust between various communities.

As a result of logistical constraints, the organisers will only be able to accommodate the first 2500 entrants into the event.

Entry into the event is R25 for pensioners and children under the age of 13, and R40 for people 13 years and older.

Each participant will receive a free gift and a beverage at the registration point on Friday 27 May. Every participant that completes the Relay Against Racism on Saturday 28 May will also receive a certificate of appreciation in recognition of your support and commitment to walking away from racism, xenophobia and related intolerances.

Participants are urged to arrive at the stadium at 09:00 on relay day, and take along handmade posters and banners denouncing all forms of racism.

There will be plenty of activities for children, including face painting and jumping castles, while exciting spot prizes will be up for grabs.

The local DJ in attendance will be Ron X Rated, a very popular radio DJ, who will be providing the perfect music setting for the day. The WP marching squad will also join in on the festivities.

A complimentary weekend hotel break valued at more than R3000, a trip on the world famous Blue Train valued at more than R37 000 and some other exciting prizes will be up for grabs. These prizes and free gifts are valued at more than R150 000.

Enter today at www.relayagainstracism.co.za or call Sharon on 021 391 0140/1 for entry forms and additional information. Those unable to access the online entry forms and payment facility, may also visit the stadium on Friday 27 May between 11:00 and 18:00 to enter.
