Get in gear for the Capital Climb

2009-08-07 00:00

IT’s time to climb!

With just over a week to go to the annual Witness Capital Climb, runners and walkers throughout the city can be seen putting the last touches to their training programme before tackling the notorious climb to World’s View next Saturday, August 15.

If you haven’t been keeping up to date with your training though, there’s also a shorter route that avoids the hill and still leaves you in line to stand a chance of winning one of the fabulous lucky draw prizes valued at R10 000 from Blomeyer’s Electrical at the finish.

You have to be in the race to stand a chance of being a winner, so be sure to enter this year’s climb and make it a family affair.

Bring your family and friends along to join you, or to cheer you on along the route.

Entries for the race cost R30 and you can pre-enter on Friday, August 14 at Voortrekker High School from 12 noon till 5 pm, or enter on the morning of the race at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall between 6.30 am and 7.45 am.

The race starts at 8 am and you have three hours in which to complete it. For more information, contact Gail at 082 445 2577 during working hours or e-mai­l
