2019 SPAR Women’s Race - Cape Town

 

The time has arrived for the annual SPAR Women’s Race to get underway in Green Point, Cape Town. Spectators and athletes alike can participate in all the fun-filled action on Sunday, 26 May 2019.

 

As usual, there will be 3 different events to choose from, a 5km challenge that’s perfect for beginner runners, a 10km walk and a 10km run that gives women with endurance the chance to strut their stuff. This event is also wheelchair friendly, and participants are welcome to walk or run the race. 

 

Eager entrants can win cash prizes if they finish in the top three of their category. The first 10 runners in the open category and the first 8 runners in the junior category (14-19) to cross the line will walk away with a bit of extra cash as well. The first 20 000 runners to collect their race number can get a free T-shirt, Race Mag and Peak Cap and the first 20 000 runners to cross the finish line will take home an achievement medal and goodie bag,

 

The beneficiary of this charity event is Operation Smile South Africa. R5 from each entry fee will be donated to Operation Smile, an organisation that facilitates free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial anomalies for children around the world.
