We’re making multi distance events, running concurrently, on a circuit course, our speciality. This year you will run and/or walk on a one kilometre loop.
We’re never shy to push the limits so we raised our targets from last year’s track 100 Capital Classic.
Per kind favour of the Inland Cricket Union and the Msunduzi Municipality’s Parks and Recreation Department, the venue for the 2015 event will be the beautiful Pietermaritzburg Oval Cricket Grounds and will include the two palm lined avenues of the Mayor’s Gardens.
What’s on offer? A whole bunch of events including the old staples.
What’s different? Quite a lot, but all for the better, we believe.
After canvassing some of the top distance runners and comparing times and events around the world, we think we’ve come up with a winning formula.
