It's been a difficult year for most of us with the Covid 19 Lockdown. Staying at home, covering our faces, losing jobs and so much more. For those who love running we have also had to bear that itch that wants us to get out there and fly particularly in a group where we can test ourselves against others and against ourselves. So at Honey Trails we realised this. we opened our trails 7 days a week now. It got us thinking; lets create something for runners that we can make truly epic. A real race. A race where the best man or woman on the day will win. Something that could become a legendary race for Durban. "The Durban Beach Front Challenge."
Of course it is, there is no question for us Durbanites. Cape Town has Table Mountain but after that what can it offer. We have the most beautiful golden wide arcing beach that disappears into the misty spray of the warm Indian Ocean. We have at one end of our beach the harbour mouth with ships coming and going but more importantly the green natural wonder of the Bluff towering above us as we view those ships. At the other end of our famous beaches we have the Umgeni River exiting into the sea popularly known as Blue Lagoon. Really a spectical without compare
Yes don't hesitate, book now and make this race the race of 2020. The one we can talk about for years to come, the one that started the race to find the King and Queen of The Beach Front Promenade Race Challenge. Who will be the record holder and for how long? Let's make Durban proud and show the rest of the country our beautiful city.
We start on the beach in front of Ushaka Parking B. The 16k route which heads south to the North Pier. If granted permission by Transnet then onto North Pier to make it 17k or turn before and head North to the Umgeni then going up river for half a kilometer and the return the same way back to the start. The 8k will head up the Promenade to the front of Suncoast where it will turn back the same way to the start.
If you can get a group of 5 runners to enter then we will give you a 6th absolutely free. Just enter all 5 online and pay then enter your 6th person and tick complimentary and email us the list of entrants.
