WOBBLERS & WIGGLERS HAT RACE FUN RUN

THE RUN


This is a nice, relatively easy route. You will work harder in the first half as you climb out of the ‘Pirates Bowl’ and run into leafy Parkview. The run back along Emmarentia Drive is a lot easier and very enjoyable.


FACILITES

The revamped Pirates Clubhouse offers a bar, takeaway and braai facilities. There is a great carnival atmosphere and something for every member of the family.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

This is a running tradition and one of Joburg's worst kept athletic secrets. The Pirates Wobbler’s and Wiggler’s Hat Race has never been on the official calendar. This run supports worthy causes, helping the needy. You must wear a funny hat and failure to comply is likely to result in instant disqualification or cash in the charity box. For the uninitiated this means you will get a lift back to the clubhouse on the beer truck. There are hats of the most fantastical creation, mining hats that have propellers and play music, outrageous Mexican sombreros and beer hats strapped to the side of a runner’s head which via an ingenious system of drinking straws provide adequate sustenance along the way.

The watering tables have developed quite a reputation. Some of the drinks served not only quench your thirst but help you lose your way. For those not bold enough to take on the Pirates watering tables Coke and water are available. The winner of the race is expected to run back to get the last runner and bribe him or her to finish the race. A bribe of R100 will do but bigger is always better! At the end of the race there is that special brand of Pirates fun only found at this event. The entry fee donation of at least R20 goes to a deserving charity and includes a raffle ticket. The best hat of the race wins a prize; the winner may even get to shake hands with the King Wobbler and kiss the Queen Wiggler. If you are in Joburg, get your hat together and come down to Pirates in Greenside to join in the fun. You will not be sorry.
