Lace up your running shoes for the annual JP21 race

2018-10-16 06:00

The JP21 Mitchell’s Plain Titans race is set to once again take the streets by storm as it returns next month.

Reaching their goal of growing the race last year, the organisers are hoping to once again attract more runners to take to the streets this year.

“Our goal is to attract 3000 runners to this year’s race,” says Jamaine Cloete, project manager for the JP21 Foundation.

“Each year we look to improve the overall experience for the runners, improving safety controls, improving parking services, [having a] more efficient registration process, increasing vendors and providing entertainment for all participants young and old.”

Avid runners and novices alike can tie their laces and try their hand at the 21km, 10km or 5km races that will start at Glendale High School and end at Rocklands Sports Grounds. This year, the race is also a league race and is in its 11th year.

Partners include the City of Cape Town, Western Cape Department of Arts, Culture and Sport, Boxer Superstores, Total Sports, Peninsula Beverages, Smile 90.4fm and Liberty Promenade Mall.

“Newcomers will receive the warmest welcome, they will get to experience our famously spirited water points, a unique but scenic route, and experience the festival atmosphere where running, families and entertainment come together,” says Cloete.

Online entries close on Sunday 18 November with manual entries open until that morning. Entry to the 21km race is R90 for licensed runners and R145 for unlicensed runners. Entry to the 10km race is R50 for licensed runners and R80 for unlicensed runners. Entry to the 5km race costs R20.
