Bedfordview Athletics Club has announced the Boroughs of Bedfordview Run, powered by Afrihost. The 15km and 5km run will take place in Bedfordview on Monday 25 September 2023 on the Heritage Day weekend.
Both distances will be timed and limited to 1750 x 15km and 250 x 5km entries and is on the Central Gauteng Athletics (CGA) calendar. All entries will receive an Afrihost technical running T-shirt, free race photos and a goodie bag.
The 5km fun run will be in support of the Bedfordview community and the net proceeds from this event will be donated to Better Bedfordview, a not-for-profit civil society organisation that is cleaning, tidying and improving the area, and creating employment. It is funded by caring and community-spirited residents and businesses such as Afrihost.
‘What started as a hybrid-virtual event during Covid is now a live race on the CGA race calendar for the second year. Novices and more experienced runners can enjoy the 5km and 15km run through the undulating ‘Boroughs’ of Bedfordview. Combined with an awesome T-shirt this should inspire you to hit the road,’ said Grant Panter, Chairman of Bedfordview Athletics Club.
Afrihost is once again the title sponsor of the event. ‘We had a lot of fun last year, but this year the Boroughs of Bedfordview Run is going to be even bigger and better. We have fun surprises planned throughout the route, plus there will be spot prizes, so don’t miss out,’ said Conrad de Beer, Brand Creative Manager of Afrihost.
The event will be hosted by Bedfordview Athletics, at Virgin Active 101 Van Buuren Avenue, Bedfordview.
