Spar Womens 10/5km Race Durban 2019


Spar Women’s Run, route and parking 

Phew! This weekend was definitely jammed packed with back to back events. This year the Spar Women’s run celebrated their 30th birthday . Still one of the best organized races in Kwa- Zulu Natal with a whopping 14751 participants this year.

Registration and race pack collection went smoothly. Goodie bags were packed with wonderful samples and a really nice shirt. I love the Grey shirt with the standard one size will fit most. There were a few full size products also included in the bag.

Ample free secure parking, and what I really appreciated was the warning to be careful with your phones in back packs. There has been a nasty trend lately where people will cut open back packs to steal phones and other valuables. It makes me want to get my tutu in a knot, but it’s unfortunately a harsh truth we have to deal with.

This year was not about running for time or distance but to support friends and have fun. We entered the 5 km and did the scenic walk, while having a few laughs. The route is very flat and was an easy walk. I cannot wait to do the Pietermaritzburg one later in the year.

There was ample hydration points with enough water sachets. YAY! We even got spoiled with a bottle of Aquelle at the end plus a breakfast pack. Other provinces receive beautiful medals, so I am a little curious why KZN receives breakfast packs. Still a nice treat after the walk.

Labelled the most beautiful race I can definitely agree, with all the lovely ladies and some gents that attend year after year. I see this as more of a social run but still a good one to add to the racing calendar.

Are all runs competitive runs for you? Do you have social runs where you just have fun? I would to hear what your favourite social run?
