RUNNERS' MEMORIAL 8 KM

THE RUN



The route is specifically designed to be easy and flat. First off, there is a two kilometre loop around the promenade and the putt-putt route at Three Anchor Bay, with the wide lawns and Mouille Point lighthouse providing a perfect backdrop to the last run of the year. Easy does it now, as you head on down to Milton’s Pool. Out to sea, a yacht and Robben Island. Onward to the Villa Via Hotel, along the pavement where the route turns back for a pleasant, flat run along the promenade and Cape Town’s most beautiful seafront.




PRIZES AND GIVE-AWAYS

The organisers have special permission to treat this race as a ‘fun run’ and therefore there are no cash prizes for the winners. The first man and the first woman each get a token prize. A commemorative drinking glass goes to the first 1,300 finishers. There are loads of lucky draw prizes.

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

This race was started by Pinelands Athletic Club in memory of Pinelands runner and UCT graduate Chris McKinnon. Chris was killed by a motor car in Pretoria while training as a member of the WP marathon team taking part in the SA Games in Pretoria. There have been so many runners that have passed on that it seems fitting that we find some space in a packed holiday schedule to remember our fellow athletes, those no longer at our shoulder, no longer at the start.
