Support is growing for the monthly Town Lodge Business Night Relay which takes place on the last Tuesday of the month at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium with Round 2 just under a week away.

Series leaders, and champions for the past couple of years, the Gamble Pharmacy team from Uitenhage, will take some beating this year with their strongest opposition currently coming from their mixed team whom they just managed to pip in Round 1 by a couple of seconds.

Open to 5 person running teams and 3 person walking teams, the Town Lodge Night Relay offers local businesses and sports teams a great opportunity to stay active during winter and socialise outside of the workplace.

This unique series held at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium sees each runner or walker having to complete a 3.5km route within the stadium grounds as well as running completely around the stadium on both levels 2 and 5 offering an awesome view of this iconic venue. The route has just a brief 100m section along Prince Alfred Road which sees participants leaving the secure gates of the stadium and this section is patrolled by Atlas Security for participants’ peace of mind whilst inside the stadium no fewer than 20 marshals and security officers are along the route which this round will also include a half-way water station.

In the walking category the social team from Bluewater Bay are currently in a class of their own and it’s going to take a group of serious walkers to challenge them.

The next round of the Town Lodge Night Relay takes place on Tuesday, 28th June starting at 18:00 with gates into the stadium opening at 16:00 for the teams.

Online registration for all new teams is mandatory with an entry fee of just R500 per running team and R300 per walking team.
