It’s time to #MoveJozi

We’ve got just two more days to go until the now annual WE RUN Jozi event takes place. Over 10 000 runs will #MoveJozi this weekend with Nike and it’s bound to be a whole bunch of fun. Chianosky and Goldfish will be there to keep us moving at the end and I’m sure there will be loads of celebs running the race, who can provide you with some entertainment too.

The race starts at onMiriam Makeba Street in Newtown and it finishes Mary Fitzgerald Square some 10kms later. If you’re looking for information on where to park and what time to be there etc, CLICK HERE.

You can still collect your race packs today and tomorrow at The Zone in Rosebank between 09:00 and 19:00. And here’s a little infographic on how to attach your timing device. It seems silly and easy, but it’s important that it’s done properly so check it out:

I’ll be hitting some Futurelife High Energy Smart Food before the race and then I’ll be good to go 🙂 I look forward to seeing those of you running there!

Get ready to #MoveJozi with Nike


Are you ready to #MoveJozi? Good because I’m so very excited to tell you that the good people at Nike have decided it’s time #WeRunJozi again. The event will take place on the 12th of October, through the streets of the JHB CBD. 10, 000 runners will get to participate in this movement, which is 10km by the way. During this run, you’ll be able to ‘Move Uptown’ or ‘Move Downtown’… Either way, it’s a challenging route, so don’t think my running down, it will be easier. I’m just saying. Depending on what you decide, you’ll get a colour coded race tee, which will determine the route you go. There will be a point where the routes merge, as you make your way to the finish line at Mary Fitzgerald Square.

NB, registration opens on the 17th at 10h00 via the official race page DON’T MISS OUT!!! The entries will go quickly. This year there is a category for open runners and a category for students. Us oldies will need to pay R200.00, while the students (with a valid student card) pay R100.00.
