Spar Women’s Race hits Durban this August 2014!
Throughout any given year we have various races that take place around Durban and South Africa and most of the time the people that engage in those races are the fitness buffs and fanatics, right? Wrong! Yes, it is important to be at a fairly moderate fitness level when entering and participating in races and walks but these races are not practiced purely for one type of person. More than anything these races are meant to get communities together, it serves as a way to get people who feel passionate about something to join and interact, and most importantly it is a way to get people to start thinking healthily. Many times we concentrate too much on getting healthy and we forget to incorporate the importance of eating healthy. Nutrition is a key part of being healthy and following and maintaining a good diet is important for everyone. We love that this has been a factor for the organisers (Spar) and that they have made an effort to communicate the importance of eating healthily before race day as a way of being happily prepared. The Spar Women’s Race has gained momentum since its conception and it has come to be known as a platform for patrons to exert a sense of personality through participation. This is always a welcomed act when it comes to showing support to anything that means something and in this case – – -keeping in the spirit of Women’s Month, the highlight definitely has to be our beloved Women of South Africa.
The event will be based at the Sahara Stadium and the vibe will be accentuated by our very own Idols Winner Khaya Mthethwa. Khaya will be the headline act and will be performing directly before the prize giving where the top runner will be awarded with a cheque to the value of R10, 000. Khaya was quoted saying the following from the Spar Women’s Race Media release 2014: “I keep fit by frequenting the gym. I have to say that performing on stage is a work out in itself as well!” a smiling Mthethwa continued. “This will be the first time that I am performing at a SPAR race and it is exciting that it is in my home town. I am truly looking forward to it!”
With all the fuss these days about getting healthy, we think there should be a fuss about ‘staying’ healthy! The Spar Women’s Race allows women to participate without judgement and with a full force of energy and support who wouldn’t want to start living better. We want to wish all our lovely women (and men) a happy Spar Women’s Race this weekend from the entire GoRhino team, we love keeping it healthy!
