Beach run for kids this Sunday morning

2016-10-26 06:00

THE popular fortnightly kids’ 1km beach run takes place again this Sunday morning as part of the aQuellé Ocean Racing Series.

Hosted on PE’s premier beach, Hobie Beach, the run/walk is for children 12 years and under with the youngest participant registered so far this season being Zoe Zoetmulder at just 14 months.

The Series, Africa’s largest family beach event, takes place on mostly alternate Sunday mornings throughout Summer with round 2 starting at 9am this Sunday.

Registration is a once-off process, ideally online to avoid the late entry fee of R30. There is no registration fee this season, with the online entry covering the first day’s race fees.

Once registered a Series number is allocated so that on all race days, one just reports for entry and pays that day’s respective entry fee without having to reregister.

Entry into the Kids’ 1km Beach Run is just R40 with a late entry fee of R30 applying if not registering online prior to the races.

All participants in the Kids’ 1km Beach Run receive an aQuellé drink and a finisher’s medal and are included in a lucky draw prize-giving starting at 10am on the beach.

The top 3 age group winners are also presented medals at the kids’ prize-giving with around 15 awesome lucky draw prizes. The top prize is R500 cash.

Also on offer at the Series is a 5km Beach Run and 5km Beach Walk for all ages while the open water swimmers can compete in a 400m swim, 1km swim, 2km swim and 3km swim with medals for the top 3 overall place holders in each race.

Lucky draw prize-giving of these events takes place on the beach just after the kids’ prize-giving. The feature lucky draw prize is R1 500 cash.

See for further information and registration. Online registration closes 5pm on Thursday with late entries received at the beach on Sunday from 7:30am.

All races start at 9am.
