Mandela Day - Run 67 minutes for education!

Sun Jul 18, 09:00 - Sun Jul 18, 12:00



On Mandela Day, the Edunova ambassadors will be hosting a VIRTUAL RUN to raise awareness and funds for children in the under resourced schools of South Africa!


Edunova would LOVE you to join and if you are worried about your fitness – don’t be! Whilst many will be regular runners, there will certainly be a healthy contingent of walkers or run-walkers….the point of this event is to take part and raise awareness for a cause that was very close to Madiba’s heart.

This is a virtual run, meaning that you can create your own 67 minute route from your home…ANYWHERE in the world! For those nearby Helderberg athletes, a few suggested routes will be published, each with a designated leader to ensure there are slow, medium and fast groups on the day. These routes have been designed to pass at least 3 schools and will be posted on this page.

Please note that Covid gathering regulations will take priority on the day – keep a safe distance & remember to wear your mask!

For those wanting to join one of the local routes on Mandela Day, all pre-planned routes will be stopping at schools along the way to take group photographs...make it memorable, dress up, bring a friend but most importantly, join in on the day and help us bring awareness to the value of education!
