“Tell us why you entered the SPAR Women’s Challenge and you could win a brand new pair of takkies worth R1500 from Action Sports,” is the promise made by SPAR Eastern Cape.

That’s not all, however, as SPAR Eastern Cape also would like to include a few stories from would-be competitors in the race day supplement to be published by The Herald later this month. The author of one of these stories will win a brand-new pair of takkies courtesy of Action Sports in Summerstrand.

How to enter

  • ONLINE: Enter online through the SPAR Eastern Cape Facebook page.
  • PRINT: The Herald is publishing entry forms several times a week  and you can pick up a copy at sports shops in Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage or even enter at The Herald offices in Baakens Street.

The race consists of a 5km and a 10km route, and both events draw women who walk, men in drag, casual joggers and runners keen to show their prowess on the road. Both races start from the grass area at Pollok Beach in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, with the gun going off for the 10km race at 7am and at 8am for the 5km.

Online entries close on Tuesday, May 2 at 9pm. All finishers receive a medal and the first 13000 to register will also receive a t-shirt.
