Get Ahead
at the 644 Series

Nothing like a headstart to get your own back on those faster runners!

Tired of
the same races and the same time trials? Then get ready to tackle the 644
Series, an
exciting new race format that
recognises an individual athlete’s running ability by levelling the playing
fields using a unique handicapping system. It’s sure to bring a different dimension
to the running calendar.


six events of the 644 series will be run over 4 miles (6.44 kilometres), with
entrants being started at one-minute intervals, from slowest to fastest, so all
entrants are literally racing all other runners to get to the finish line
first. What’s more, there is an innovative team system that allows runners to
pit their skills against club mates, work colleagues or friends to earn the
right to wear the yellow polyshorts! A unique league system has been developed
across the series to keep things interesting and relevant for all participants.


are limited to 644 participants per event, so you need to enter early, but a further
innovation allows you to enter for the whole series upfront and guarantee your
spot. The first event will be on 13 September at Waterfall Estate, Midrand
 and each event will be timed by
Peak Timing using ChampionChip. So what are you waiting for? Check out
