10th Sunridge Village family run on May 14

2016-05-11 06:00

THE Sunridge Village Family Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 14 at 7am.

Being the 10th anniversary of this event, organised by the PE Amateur Athletic Club and Sunridge Village Shopping Centre, it promises to be the greatest to date. Their aim this year is a record breaking 2500 competitors.

A special 10th anniversary commemorative medal will be handed to the first 1220 finishers in the 10km, as well as the first 1220 finishers in the 5km events. This special medal is designed to be used as a key ring as well.

This will once again be a fun-filled family affair with fantastic hampers, lucky draws and some major prizes. These include a R2 500 shopping experience from Sunridge SuperSpar, a major sponsor to the event.

“Although an official EPA Participating Road Running League event, it also caters for the whole family with distances of both 5km and 10km,” said Suzanne Fincham, Centre Manager at Sunridge Village Shopping Centre.

The school with the most bulk entries in the 5km race will earn themselves a R1000 prize. There is also a special prize for the company with the most bulk entries.

Other fun category prizes include first Family Home, Parent and Pram, Dad and Dog and Mom and Tot. However, there is a restriction of 1 dog per entry. Entrants wanting to qualify for these special prizes must indicate this at registration.

Timed results will be available for both the 10km and 5km events. These will be posted on the windows in front of Sunridge Build It, and on their website www.sunridgevillage.co.za shortly after the prize giving.

The first 1 000 pre-entries at one of the following shops at Sunridge Village Shopping Centre will receive a special event T-shirt: Spec Savers, PostNet and Myburg’s Sports. Other venues where pre-entries can be made are at all major sport shops in Port Elizabeth as well as Brockett’s Sports in Uitenhage. Bulk and pre-entries close on Wednesday, May 11 at 5pm. Festivities kick off on Friday, May 13 at 5pm with pre-registration and late entries in the mall.
