The Sunridge Village Family Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, 7 May. The start gun for the 10km race will be at 07:00 and the 5km race at 07:15.

Being the 14th anniversary of this sought-after event, organised by the Port Elizabeth Amateur Athletic Club and Sunridge Village Shopping Centre, it once again promises to be a great event. Since inception this event has grown to become one of the most successful and popular events on the athletics calendar for both professional and amateur/family participants.

“It is so encouraging to see the hundreds of students and families participating at these events”, said Les Barnes, president of PEAAC.

This will once again be a fun filled family affair with fantastic hampers as lucky draws and some major prizes. These include a R2 500 shopping experience from Sunridge SuperSpar, a major sponsor to the event.

“The school with the most bulk entries will earn themselves a R1 000 prize, so we encourage all schools to participate and support the event. There is also a special prize for the business/company with the most bulk entries,” says Suzanne Fincham, Centre Manager at Sunridge Village Shopping Centre.

Other fun category prizes include first Family Home, Parent and Pram, Dad and Dog and Mom and Tot. However, there is a restriction of 1 dog per entry. Entrants wanting to qualify for these special prizes must indicate this at registration.

The first 1 000 on-line pre-entries will receive an event T-shirt. On-line pre-entries can be done via the website, (scroll down to “Events”) up to 17:00 on Thursday, 5 May. Bulk entries can only be done manually at the Sunridge Village Center Management Office before close of entries, or on Friday Evening, 6 May at registration.
