THE RUN



The route for the 2,5 and 10 kilometre races will be off road. The route is used by the local Park Run. It will test you while giving you a 360 view of the stadium precinct.

 

The 21 and 42 kilometre races will be run on tar. The route will take you to places like Zandspruit, Cosmo City, Randburg, Greenside, Braamfontein, Newton,  Westdene, Newlands, Wilgeheuwel and back to the stadium. You will experience Johannesburg in a new light. Enjoy the race day atmosphere past some of Johannesburg’s iconic landmarks and neighbourhoods.

 

There is everything on the route, the ups and downs. You will be tested. You will feel triumphant at the end. The 67 kilometre run is held in honour of Tata’s legacy. We know he loved children. What better way to keep his fighting spirit alive than to put our bodies on the line for social good. This is the alternative Comrades

EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

The Fatherhood Run was launched by Sylvester Mashilo, The Founder of the SylvesterMashilo Foundation in July 2021. He ran a total of 670 KMs over a 27 day period. The run sought to highlight the Chernobyl high levels of fatherlessness in South Africa. Sylvester managed to raise over R150K for the Foundation’s flagship Program (a Boys Mentorship Program). The Run was featured on 702, SAFM, 5FM, YFM, SABC News, Newzroom Afrika and achieved its aim of deepening conversations about the absence of fathers in the lives of their children. At the end of the Run Sylvester was convinced that this moment has to be an annual one and not a once-off.

The 670 kilometre run will take place every 5 years with the blue ribbon 67 kilometre run taking place in-between the 5 year cycle.
