RUN FOR CHARITY
The Urban Run is a charity fundraising event - inspiring the philanthropist in you to come out through your participation in the Urban Run. All entrants are required to raise a minimum of R100 (over and above their entry fee) for the cause by spreading the word and seeking donations from colleague's, friends and family members in the build up to the event. Various levels of incentives
have been designed to encourage participants to collect as much money as possible for the event charities - and will also determine the starting order for the event.
"Since inception in 2011 the Urban Runners have raised over R850,000 for charity."
KIDS URBAN RUN
It's important that we also keep the kids involved and so the Urban weekend includes a Kids Urban Run which is for children between the ages of 6yrs and 14yrs. The course is between 2km and 3km.
URBAN FESTIVAL OF ACTIVITY
Entertainment and activities over the Urban Weekend - program to be announced closer to the race weekend. Festival includes activities for the whole family including the KIDS ZONE
managed by a local Rotary Club.
Entertainment over the weekend is sponsored by Caltex Eastern Cape Marketer which includes local magician Brendon Peel and funny man Gino Fabbri.
Route & Venue
The Urban Run Festival takes place at the Donkin Reserve with the Urban Run route traditionally only disclosed a week or two before the event weekend.
