3. Dawn to Dusk 2016
Races like these are hard to find but when the Dawn to Dusk Circuit Race comes around, many people know about it. This race is a demanding and very challenging race for all who take part. With a 1km course that winds its way through the Akasia High School, runners must try and complete as many laps of the course as possible with 12 hours. Are you up for the challenge? The record distance for a team entry into this race is 152km. That means you’ll need to do 153 laps in order to break the race record. Will we see you there?


4. Randburg Harriers Street Mile
A street mile… What’s that? Well, bring yourself down to the Randburg Sports Complex as we introduce you to this exciting form of racing.
