Slave Route Challenge 2017 – I Run This

The Slave Route Challenge is happening again on Sunday 14 May 2017.

This will be the 7th running of the popular race which takes entrants through the heart of Cape Town passing many significant landmarks from the city’s slave history.

Metropolitan is the official sponsor of the Slave Route Challenge and Head of Brand Llewellyn Allen says it is much more than a great sporting event: “it commemorates an important part of our past and highlights extraordinary stories from our communities”.

To mark the Slave Route Challenge Metropolitan’s “I Run This” campaign will showcase the successes of rising local DJ stars Carissa Cupido, Maka Tanga and Seano Loots who will be taking part in the challenge and inspiring others to take part as well.

There are four Slave Route Challenge events – half-marathon, 10k run, 10k Big Walk, 5k Fun Run – starting from 0700 at the City Hall in Darling Street on Sunday 14 May.
