Have you entered the Discovery Vitality Run Series?
A few weeks back it was announced that Discovery Vitality was partnering with some of the top Joburg races this year. You know those “must do” races those of us living here mark to enter annually. If you’re new to the area these are the Old Ed’s Road Race, Wanderers Aucor Property Race, Adrienne Hersch Challenge and Rockies Gerald Fox Memorial. Just in time for Spring as the weather begins to warm up.
It don’t matter if you’re a regular runner or new to running #getsomeonerunningSA you should consider entering one if not all four races in the series. Discovery Vitality Run Series will be giving out limited edition medals that if you complete all four races you end up with a stunning final single medal.
First race in the series takes place this weekend 6th August 2017, Old Ed’s Road Race. If you didn’t get to enter, you’re still on time to enter one of the main races for the second race in the series Wanderers Aucor Property Race on the 27th August 2017. Hurry now as the 5km Fun Run has already sold out!

To enter any of these races – obviously excluding Old Eds – visit www.discovery.co.za/vitality/runseries. I’ve run Old Eds, Wanderers and Adrienne Hersch before, they all host just the right balance of tough and recovery. This year Rochies Gerald Fox Memorial will be the first time I get to actually run it, the last time I entered but never got to the start line. Sad I know.
