EC’s richest 10km race

2016-03-24 06:00

On Saturday 2nd April some of South Africa’s elite runners, as well as local elite runners, will be vying for their share of R130 000.

The 6th Motherwell Freedom Run and 5km Fun Run, will see a number of athletes running to set new EP records and taking home a massive R10 000 first prize.

In the open male/female category prizes will be awarded to the first 10 runners. The second prize is R6 000, third is R4 000, fourth R3 000, fifth R2 000. Then respectively R1 500, R1 000, R750, R500 and R400.

The other age categories up to 70+ all carry a first prize of R1 500 and have placings up to 5th place.

All this equates to the richest 10km in the Eastern Cape.

As far as the lucky draw prizes are concerned on race day there will be two R5 000 and two R1 000 cash lucky draws on an attendance only basis.

This is thanks to the Motherwell Urban Renewal, City of Champions and NMB Municipality.
