Enough of winter – I am not meant to live like this honestly! I am really glad that there is a touch of Spring in the air too, and am totally ready to unfreeze my fingers and toes at this years highly anticipated Discovery Jacaranda FM Spring Walk on 8 September 2018.
This is the 7th iteration of the event and they also have a brand new home in the form of Loftus to host the event.
What’s on Offer…?
Starting and ending at the iconic Loftus Versfeld stadium, this year’s Spring Walk includes:
5 km and 10 km run
5 km and 10 km walks
15 km timed walk
‘Mini-Mile’ for kids (new concept) has been added to get the whole family moving.
Families can also enjoy a great atmosphere afterward with a food village at the stadium, big screens for the South Africa vs Australia rugby test match at 12pm and; a post-event stellar artist entertainment line-up.
Music acts, including Jo Black and Prime Circle will bring you more music you love, whilst the Jacaranda FM presenters will lead exciting activities for young and old throughout the day. Participants can also use their RFID chips to record performance-times and personalise their race t-shirt.
We need to exercise more…
South Africa needs more events like the Spring Walk to encourage everyone to do more physical activity. Discovery’s aim of making people healthier and enhancing and protecting their lives is needed more than ever across the country.
South African children scored a C for overall physical activity according to the latest Healthy Active Kids Report Card South Africa, a joint research initiative between the Sports Science Institute of South Africa and Discovery Vitality.
Every small bit helps, so get off the couch and get moving…
