On 22 October 2022, running and walking enthusiasts are invited to join Distance for Difference (D4D) at the picturesque Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West for The Gratitude Run 2022. 


After two very successful events in 2016 and 2018, Covid unfortunately prevented us from hosting an in-person GRATITUDE Run in 2020 and we were forced to present a virtual run. It was just not the same...This year we are back in full force and super stoked to host a running event in-person again!


Come and show your GRATITUDE for your health and your ability to run or walk. All proceeds, after direct expenses, will go towards D4D (a registered section 21 company and non-profit organisation). We are raising funds for various children charities including Tzadokah Foster Home, Sylvia Frank Foster Home, Kingdom Kids and Esther van Zyl Foster Care - just to name a few. 


You can choose one of three ways to participate:


1.    5 km Fun Run | Walk


Young and old are invited to join in the fun! You can either choose to run or walk the 5 km and set your own pace! Dogs are allowed (one per person, but not without a leash) .


Entry Fee: R100 (Adults - 12 years and older), R50 (Children under 12 years)

Starting Time: 08h00


2.    10 km Trail Run


This one is for all trail running enthusiasts. Come and experience the beautiful routes and trails on Lourensford Wine Estate. It promises to be an interesting mix! No children under the age of 16, will be allowed to participate in the Trail Run.


Runners will be timed by the organisers of the event.


Entry Fee: R190

Starting Time: 07h00


3.    3 x 4 x 5 | Team Relay Run


Runners enter as a team (3, 4 or preferably 5 members per team). Team members will run laps of 3 km each. The challenge for teams will be to complete as many 3 km laps as possible in the allotted time period, i.e., 4 hours (07h30 - 11h30).  Nominate a team captain, decide on a cool name & theme for your team and bring along heaps of team spirit!

There are 3 categories to choose from:

MEN Only Team

WOMEN Only Team


(*At least 1 woman in a 3 member team and 2 women in a 4 or 5 member team).


Runners will be timed by the organisers of the event.

Involve non-runners, family, friends, companies, etc. by encouraging them to sponsor your team! This way we can ALL show GRATITUDE. 


It is all about team work and supporting your team mates, while they are soaking in the exquisite surrounds of the beautiful Lourensford Wine Estate. There will be live music, prizes, lucky draws, enthusiastic athletes and sponsors supporting a worthy cause!


Entry fee: R600 per team

Starting Time: 07h30


It is not joy that makes us GRATEFUL, it is GRATITUDE that makes us JOYFUL!

Hi there!

You are about to enter a "giving-back-event".

Thank you for choosing to make a difference with Distance For Difference (D4D)!

This event will be a joint effort of the community to impact the lives of vulnerable children in desperate need of loving care, parental guidance, a good education, a place of safety or simply a nourishing meal.

Our aim is to raise R250,000!

We truly appreciate your support!

Yours faithfully
