Night Run to Honour Healthcare Workers 2021 - Gqeberha

Sat Oct 16, 18:00 - Sat Oct 16, 20:00
Kings Beach Surf Lifesaving Club


Welcome to the Gqeberha 7km Night Run to Honour Healthcare Workers, brought to you by the Exceptional Nurse Campaign, supported by Run/Walk for Life! The event will be held on Saturday 16 October 2021 at 18h00.

This family-friendly event is open to everyone, not only healthcare workers, and aims to both honour healthcare workers and raise funds for bursaries for student nurses. The first 2 000 entrants will receive 2 super free gifts at registration.

Tickets are R100 for adults and R50 for children under 12 years. Entries close on 15 October 2021.


The 7km Night Run will be a physical and a virtual event. As restrictions on numbers are currently expected, three options will be available:

  1. Run with healthcare workers at 18h00 from the main Night Run venue.
  2. Run an organised 7km route from designated Run/Walk for Life Club venues. Your proof of entry will be required.
  3. Run a 7km route from ANYWHERE!

Should COVID-19 regulations prevent the main 7km Night Run event from taking place, only options 2 or 3 will be available (i.e. the event will be held as a virtual event).
