Get your race number!


Race number collection for the 2016 Dischem Half Marathon starts tomorrow!

Set to start at 06:00 sharp on Sunday 17 January, the Dischem Half Marathon has become one of the most popular events to kick off the running year which regularly sells out way before the cut-off date due to its popularity.

And the 2016 event is no exception so, unfortunately, if you haven’t entered you are too late for this year.

But if your entry was successful, you can collect your race number, plus your awesome Goodie Bag and T-shirt from the following locations:


  • Thursday 14 January, Dischem Fourways Mall, from 09:30 to 17:00.
  • Friday 15 January, Dischem Park Meadows (opposite Eastgate), from 09:30 to 17:00.
  • Saturday 16 January, Virgin Active Bedfordview, from 09:30 to 15:30.

And if you miss those dates for any particular reason, you’ll still be able to collect your race number at Virgin Active Bedfordview on race day itself from 05:00 before the start. Unfortunately, you won’t get your goodie bag or your T-shirt as you will only be able to get them at the collection points mentioned above.

In addition to the half marathon, there is also a 5km Dash, which starts at 06:30, which is a fun run for the whole family.

The Dischem Half Marathon is organised by the Bedfordview Country Club Athletics.

So, if you do have an entry, make your way to the collection points sooner rather than later. And good luck for Sunday!
