Hi Guys

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

We will be kick starting the 2017 SERIES OF THE DURBAN NORTH & UMHLANGA CPF NITE RUN/WALK  on FRIDAY 27 JANUARY 2017.

To try and spice the event up a bit we will be trying a few NEW things this year including the following:

·        Variation of  the route!!

·        Starting a little earlier at 18h00 – this will allow for more socializing!!

·        We will also be including a grand prize at the end of the year!! To encourage a more regular participation, all entrants that enter and complete 3 of the 4 events in the Series will go into a LUCKY DRAW at the end of the year to win a FABULOUS PRIZE!!

·        We are hoping to introduce timing this year!! More info to follow

·        Encourage more food stalls and social vibe!!

So with this in mind and after a bit of indulgence over the Festive Season – we suggest you grab your mates and PRE-ENTER NOW online via www.roag.co.za or at Sports Zone Running Shop in Durban North.

We are once again appealing for sponsors to jump on board and for only R3750 per quarter you can also be part of this great community event!! If you are interested and for further info give us a call and we will explain.

See you on the 27th!!
