Join us in Cape Town on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a 5k run at 7pm.

Your  R150 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its €500,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don't miss out!


The Cape Town run will be championed by Mark Baldwin.


The route is 5 kms and will take place at Fish Hoek Beach. We are taking advantage of the fact that this year the tide will be out at 8pm, woohoo!

This is a fun run/walk and not a timed event – if you are interested in your time you will need to track yourself. 

You can park at the beach (free). The start-and-finish is in front of The Galley Restaurant at the beach. From there we run to the end of Jager’s Walk and back again past The Galley and onto the beach itself. We will run to the end of the beach, crossing the railway line (don’t mind the gap – mind the trains) at Clovelly and up onto the new footpath that runs along the sea-side towards Kalk Bay. When we reach the (new) Kalk Bay sign we will retrace our steps and run back the way we came along the beach to the finish at The Galley.

NB SECURITY : We will have minders posted on Jager’s Walk and on the beach as it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Please aim to arrive at 18.45 (6.45pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and buff and have a group photo before we go running.
