Johannesburg – The Johannesburg leg of the Spar Women's Challenge road race is changing venues to the Wanderers Club in Illovo, race organisers said on Tuesday.
The 10km race will move from the traditional Old Parktonians Sports Club in Randburg and will be held on October 13.
The route will take the runners along Corlett Drive and Oxford Road as far as Riviera Road in Killarney, before zigzagging back through some of Johannesburg's leafiest suburbs.
“All the runners will enjoy the new 10km route, it is not as challenging as the previous route,” said route designer Sonja Laxton.
“There are a few longish uphill drags, but generally it is quite a gentle route, and I think the layman runner will appreciate it.”
The Johannesburg Challenge is the last of the five races that make up the Grand Prix. – Sapa
