DUBBED, South Africa’s most beautiful race, the next leg of the national series of the SPAR Women’s 5/10km Challenge comes to the Capital on Sunday, August 19, and participants have until Monday, August 13 to enter online, or they can manually enter at race registration on August 17 and 18.

This past weekend, over 25 000 women came out in full force for the Pretoria race that saw Glenrose Xaba take the honours in a time of 33:56 minutes, and the excitement has started to build as all eyes focus on Maritzburg.

Once again, the race starts outside Maritzburg College in Princess Margaret Drive, taking a route through the picturesque Alexandra Park, and through the outer parts of the CBD on Sunday, August 19. Both the 10km and 5km races start at 8 am and end at The Oval Cricket Stadium in Alexandra Park.

All participants will receive a race t-shirt and a goodie bag when collecting their race numbers, which must be done at race registration, and after completing the race participants will receive a breakfast pack. There is a Kids Zone for children to have some fun at the finish, however this is not a child-care facility and adults still need to look after their children.

Entries can still be done online at www.sparwomensrace.co.za/maritzburg using a credit card by 13 August. Manual entry at race registration takes place on Friday, August 17 (10 am to 5 pm) and Saturday, August 18 (10 am to 3 pm) at The Oval Cricket Stadium in Alexandra Park.

Entries to the 10km distance are open from age 14 and to the 5km from age 9, the age restrictions being applicable on the day of the competition. Entry fees are R110 for the 10km licensed athletes and for all the 5km runners, and R125 for 10km unlicensed athletes. The field is capped at 4 500 entries. This year, R2 from each entry goes to the official race charity - Choc (Childhood Cancer Foundation) Pietermaritzburg.

For more information contact the race organisers on maritzburg@sparwomensrace.co.za or visit the official race on www.sparwomensrace.co.za or like the Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram. — Supplied.
