The eighth annual Slave Route Challenge takes place in Cape Town on Sunday.

Organisers are excited to announce that they have established a “French connection”.

“After watching a news extract on CNN of the Slave Route Challenge 2017, the Island of Reunion-based French Embassy made contact with its counterparts in Cape Town to find out more about our event. Contact was made with us in Cape Town, so four athletes, two coaches and a cultural band called Lindigo will be coming to Cape Town this weekend. One of the coaches is the president of the Athletics Federation of Reunion Island. The athletes will participate in the 10km run,” says Fatima Allie, communications manager at Itheko Event Management.

Runners who have already entered are encouraged to collect their race numbers at the Castle of Good Hope on Friday between 10:00 and 20:00 or on Saturday between 10:00 and 17:00.

A limited number of late entries for the 5km fun run/walk and the 10km big walk will be taken at number collection over the above two days.

Lindigo will be performing at the Castle of Good Hope on Saturday from 14:00 to 16:00, as well as on the Grand Parade on Sunday from 09:00 to 10:30.

All four events will start with a canon fire from the Leerdam Bastion of the Castle.

The half marathon starts at 07:00, the 10km run at 07:15, the 10km big walk at 07:30 and the 5km fun run/walk at 07:45.

“There are refreshment stations along the route, food vendors on the Grand Parade, tog bag facilities, as well as entertainment starting at 09:00. Medals and Coca-Cola will be given to all finishers.”
