Runners to tackle ‘fastest’ course in country

2016-07-28 06:00

Come the 30th of July Nelson Mandela Bay will be boasting the presence of some of South Africa’s finest, elite runners.

The SA Half Championship competition will be hotly contested over what is arguably the fastest course in the country. The event is proudly sponsored by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality and the City of Champions as partners of EPA on the Legacy Project.

The purse is massive, with the winners of the male and female category each walking away with R50 000, maintaining the title of the richest half marathon race in South Africa.

The 21.1km Road Race starts at 07:15, and the accompanying 5km Fun Run will start 15 minutes earlier, at 07:00.

The prize giving will commence at 10:45 at the venue.

Registration and late entries will be held on Friday 29th July from 14:00 to 20:00 and from 05:00 on race day at the Summerstrand Surf Life Saving Club.
