1 – The FUN!
Walking and talking go hand in hand so you can spend the morning laughing and catching up with your besties, colleagues, family – or even strangers who become friends at the Walk.
There’s a great vibe at the start, with music, dancing and the 702 presenters getting everyone hyped up. Along the route there are powerzones and waterpoints at regular intervals to ensure you’re motivated and hydrated; and then at the end, we put on some of the best live entertainment in the city with a secret band that will make you forget about your sore muscles as they get you up and dancing!
2 – You can make a difference
Many charities and groups use the Walk to raise awareness and much-needed funds for a variety of excellent causes. Walk for a cause that’s close to your heart to make your steps even more meaningful. Also, a portion from each entry goes towards key projects identified by the organisers, so you’re making a difference just by entering!
3 – It’s our city and we love it!
Joburg sometimes gets a bad rap but we know it can also be a beautiful place and that one of the best things about it is the people! So come together with 50 000 other great people and explore this special city on foot. The 15km particularly takes walkers through some iconic landmarks in Joburg while the shorter routes offer an experience of one of the biggest man-made forests in the world.
