THE SPAR Women’s Challenge in Port Elizabeth, scheduled for this weekend, has been postponed due to steps announced by the presidency to tackle the coronavirus outbreak.

This was the message from SPAR Eastern Cape sponsorship and events manager ,Alan Stapleton, following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address to the nation on Sunday0 in which stringent measures were introduced to try to contain the spread of Covid-19.

“In the light of the statements from the government and the limitations imposed on sports events the races will be postponed,” said Stapleton.

“October 17 has been proposed as a suitable date, but we will still need final confirmation once the finer details have been sorted out.”

He added that the entries of those who had already entered would remain valid for the race’s future date.
