Spar Ladies' Race, Supersport Park

On Saturday, 28 August 2010, the biggest ever Spar Ladies' 5 and 10 km races took place at Supersport Park, Centurion. A massive field of approximately 24 000 ladies (and a few drag queens!) dressed in bright pink t-shirts lined up for the 2 pm start.

The undulating 10 km course gave both runners and walkers a run for their money through the leavy suburbs in and around Centurion. Water and other refreshment tables were a welcome distraction every 2 km - some even manned by buff, shirtless guys sporting bow ties and tuxedo pants!

Race organisation was superb - more than 2 000 volunteers ensured that things ran smoothly both on route and at the finish line. Good quality medals and awesome goody bags awaited all those who completed the race back at Supersport Park, along with top class entertainment by Kurt Darren and three stars of the local soapie Sewende Laan. MCs Elana Afrika and Annie Malan kept the crowds on their feet with various freebie hand-outs, including Spar shopping vouchers for a year worth R12 000 and a brand new, silver Nissan bakkie!

A fabulous day out for all the ladies - thanks Spar and all the other sponsors!
