Nedbank is ready to roll with all the entertainment acts lined up to rock the stars of the show, the Comrades Marathon runners, along the #NedbankGreenMile on Kloof’s Old Main Road on Sunday, 1 June, when it transforms into the themed #ROCKSTAR #NedbankGreenMile – the only official spectator point along the Comrades Marathon route located approximately 26 km from the finish line.
Promoting only KZN talent, the rock stars performing on the electrifying #NedbankGreenMile, this year themed “Rock & Roll”, will be homegrown, ‘youthful’ and energetic. One such star is the immensely talented Durban musician and South African Idols finalist, Krystle T, whose soulful vocals are set to inspire weary runners as they embark on the final stretch of this gruelling 89km ultra-marathon.
Also preparing to get crowds and runners rocking is Durban-based band, Afritude, while St Nicholas Diocesan School’s Marimba Band will be thumping out tropical tunes. Add to the mix the fun-filled antics of the Barnyard Theatre Crew; African brass and youth development band,
The Field Foundation; and the Medical Battalion Pipe Band, and the #NedbankGreenMile will be the place to be for a fun-filled, family-friendly day out.
Throughout the day, there’ll also be performances by Durban High Drummies, the sexy Sharkettes dancers, local cheerleaders, drama students from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, giant puppets and Durban DJs.
The dedicated kid’s entertainment zone will feature clown and puppet shows, sand art, jumping castles, face painters and a balloon sculptor throughout the day.
Entry into the #NedbankGreenMile is free and all are welcome to join in on the festivities, which start at 8am and end at 2.30pm on race day. So come dressed like rockstars to get your runners home!
