MTN Walk the Talk with 702 is back and excited to be stepping out together, as South Africans!
We don’t barbeque, we BRAAI, we don’t stop at a traffic light, we wait for the ROBOT to change! We live in MZANSI, and know what makes this country such a special place – so let’s come together and celebrate ourselves!
Entries for this year’s Walk the Talk are officially open and as always, the cap at 50 000 walkers means that you need to register soon to avoid missing out! MTN and 702 are passionate about connecting people and that’s exactly what the Walk the Talk event is all about – people coming together from all backgrounds and walking in a spirit of celebration of our diversity. Each entrant receives a free MTN Walk the Talk with 702 ‘sporti’ to wear on the day, and to remind you of the experience whenever you wear it afterwards!
The MTN Walk the Talk with 702 event caters to walkers of all fitness levels and abilities – there’s a 15km walk which winds through some of Joburg’s iconic landmarks, an 8km walk which goes through the leafy suburbs around Emmerentia, and a 5km walk which attracts a lot of families walking with kids, prams, gran and gramps, and even the family dog.
Many walkers use the event as a platform to raise awareness for great causes and come together in vibrant costumes or matching outfits. Others use it for a teambuilder for colleagues and friends. There’s also the opportunity to give back as a portion of the entry fees go toward communities across the city as part of the Walk the Talk Legacy Project.
Where it all began…
Known to Joburgers as the world’s biggest walking event, with over 50 000 participants, the Walk the Talk is not only recognised for providing a platform for people wanting to raise awareness about different causes, but also to encourage people to come together and enjoy themselves.
In line with 702’s focus on building bridges between people and strengthening communities, the event brings together people from all walks of life, different status groups, of all ages to do something positive and be active.
