Rhino fun run

The 4,9km Rhino Fun Run

This Family Fun Run takes place on Saturday, 13 April 2019, from the start of the 21,1km Wild Challenge (near the Dam wall). This unique run will be towards the Resort along the dam. No prize-money will be awarded, but all finishers will receive a medal. Walkers are also welcome. The Fun Run starts at 06:45, as soon as the cannon is moved from the 21,1km start to the start of the Fun Run. Participants use the same shuttle service as the 21km athletes to get from the resort to the start, however preference will be given to the 21,1km athletes as their race starts earlier and is an official event. The fun run starts in the road in front of the petrol station at the Damwal shopping centre, and follows the last section of the 21,1km route back to Loskopdam, a Forever Resort.


This race has pledged itself to Modern Athlete’s #runclean campaign. Runners are urged to honor this pledge by disposing of sachets or other refuse at water points and only at designated refuse bins. Please do not throw your water sachets in the veld. Rather drop it in the road if you miss the provided bins for ease of cleaning up.
