Wings For Life World Run Returns To Pretoria!
The Event starts on West Street in Centurion, Pretoria.
The venue will have many food and drink vendors as well as a beer garden. There will be a big screen for participants to follow both the local and international event. Toilets and shade to chill after the run will also be available.
Participants will pass through Irene Farm up to 10km. Runners then head out past Olifantsfontein and Clayville which will take them to 21km. We then head towards Ranjespark and Zwartop.
The entry fee will be R250.00. If the participant does not belong to a running club or have an ASA license, they will have to purchase a temporary license when they collect their race pack (R30.00 but subject to change).
You will receive a race number that contains a timing tag that is activated when you pass the Catcher Car at the start line. This tag then registers your result when the Catcher Car passes you at the end of your race.
All participants who register prior to March 12, 2017, 13h00 local time will receive a personalised race number.
Race number handout will happen the week leading up- and on the event weekend. More information will be provided in the months before the event.
In our unique event concept, all wheelchair participants are part of the global Wings for Life World Run and can compete with the runners. We will try to accommodate all participants in wheelchair but due to the global character of the race special rules will need to be enforced to obtain a valid result.
The pretoria venue is wheelchair friendly.
On route, there will be busses transporting runners that have been eliminated from the event back to the venue. We will also be offering a wheelchair accessible bus transfer from the route back to the venue
The Refreshment stations will be 3km apart. The first 6 stations will have Red Bull, Cola and water. From station 7 (21km mark) and beyond, these stations will have the same liquids plus potentially an isotonic drink as well as having some food in the form of baby potatoes, banana bread, oranges and some jellies.
In consultation with the local authorities, we offer sufficient medical service onsite and along the course.
If you are allergic to something or have other important information for the medical team in case of emergency, please make sure to note this on the provided form on the reverse side of your race number.
We will have a full medical setup at the venue which will include a race doctor and nurses as well as paramedics, as well as multiple mobile medical response units on route.
