HELP US TO SPREAD SUNSHINE.

As part of your entry fee you will help us donate a food parcel to a gender-based violence (GBV)
survivor’s family in need, on behalf, in collaboration with the Good Morning Angels on Jacaranda FM.

What began as a way to get women of all ages, shapes and sizes together to enjoy a run, the SPAR Women’s Challenge brand has become one of the world’s biggest road races.

The SPAR Women’s Challenge is the most popular and inclusive road race in South Africa, attracting the country’s top professional female athletes and thousands of recreational runners.

Over the past 30 years the SPAR Women’s Challenge came to be known as South Africa’s Most Beautiful Road Race and is a symbol of recognition for thousands of women who have played their role by lining up year after year behind the start lines.

This year has been far from normal, and circumstances have forced us to redesign our thinking and re-engineer our reality.

To be able to go further, we must go together and for this reason, this year the Tshwane, Johannesburg and Lowveld races will be combined into one incredible online event – the SPAR Women’s Virtual Challenge!

The importance of connection is crucial, especially during this challenging time; and with the SPAR Women’s Challenge being a platform that has the ability to bring people from all walks of life together, to participate in the Most Beautiful Race, is needed now more than ever.

With #BeSunshine being the theme for this year’s virtual challenge, there is an underlying message of walking together, walking for a purpose, walking in someone else’s shoes, by showing love and kindness, as well as walking on sunshine, by sharing messages that bring joy, happiness and sunshine personified.

As part of your entry fee you will help us to spread a bit of sunshine to gender-based violence (GBV) survivor’s families. We will donate a food parcel to a gender-based violence (GBV) survivor’s family in need, on behalf, in collaboration with the Good Morning Angels on Jacaranda FM.

HOW IT WORKS

Over the years, the race has brought women from all walks of life together, to make a difference
in our communities and this year will be NO DIFFERENT!

You can run, jog, or walk your own race, at your own pace and choose your own distance from any location you choose*.
