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


Involve non-runners, family, friends and/or companies, 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 Dornier Wines. There will be live music, prizes, lucky draws, enthusiastic athletes and sponsors supporting a worthy cause!


Online Entry fee: R700 per team

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