Run, Cycle or Walk to Help us Raise Money for Bibles

Our 2020 event was incredibly successful with over 2000 runners, walkers and cyclists taking part in our first ever virtual event! Through contributions we were able to provide 2000 bibles to people in need as well as 2000 literacy books specifically for children, that’s 4000 lives changed through your support.

This year we want to bigger and better! Our 2021 event continues to support the Bible Society’s goal to distribute 2 million Bibles in celebration of their 200th year. 

With the Covid19 pandemic, we are still not able to hold a mass event, but included in our virtual event we have included 6 mini-live events throughout the country! Events will be limited to 200 runners each and offer a 5km route, with all COVID 19 Protocol being followed. The events are listed below and can be found on the entry site.

  • Midstream Estate 5km 
  • Bible Society Johannesburg 5km8 Anemoon Road, Glen Marais Ext1
