More than 10 000 runners took to the streets of Cape Town on Sunday to participate in the annual Slave Route Challenge, which was hosted by Brimstone Itheko Sport Athletics Club.

According to Fatima Allie, communications manager at Itheko Event Management, the streets of Cape Town came alive in celebration of the eighth edition of the race, powered by Metropolitan.

“The atmosphere was one of love, hope and togetherness. Heritage sites were passed and koeksisters were handed out in the Bo-Kaap. Four elite athletes from the Island of Reunion participated, while Lindigo, also from the Island of Reunion, entertained the crowd on the Grand Parade,” says Allie.

Leliebloem House was the race beneficiary for this year’s event and received a cheque of R65 000.

“It was an event that brought local and international runners and walkers together with a focus on our shared heritage.”
