Make sure you get your race pack


In spite of only opening at 09:00 this morning, hundreds of athletes registered for the Soweto Marathon have already collected their race packs.

Race pack collection is currently taking place at Johannesburg Stadium, corner of Currie and Staib streets, New Doornfontein.

So, if you are on your way there today, or plan to go there either tomorrow or Saturday, make sure you’ve got the following:
• Your ChampionChip (unless you are hiring or purchasing one, in which case it’ll be in your race pack);
• Your ID, driver’s licence or passport;
• Your confirmation of registration slip;
• Your student card or a letter from your school (if you are a school pupil);

If you are unable to pick up your race pack yourself, print out a letter of authorisation (as found on the website ) and give it to someone else to collect it for you. However, they would need to take with them your confirmation slip, a copy of your ID/passport/driver’s licence and your ChampionChip.

Race pack collection takes place from 09:00 to 18:00 on Thursday 29 October, Friday on 30 October and Saturday 31 October.
