SPAR Women’s Virtual Challenge links with parkrun
The SPAR Women’s Virtual Challenge is making the circle bigger in 2022, partnering withparkrun South Africa to allow participants to attend physical events, the supermarket brand said.
The Virtual Challenge was launched in 2020 amid the Covid-19 pandemic, allowing South Africans to participate in the event in solidarity during a time of uncertainty and strife.
The popular event will return for a third instalment, albeit with fewer restrictions, allowing entrants to come together wherever they are to run, jog, walk, skip or even dance at their own pace, choosing their route and completing their challenge any time between 6am and 6pm.
The partnership with parkrun South Africa provides SPAR Women’s Virtual Challenge participants with a safe space to come together as a community on September 3 at any of the 176 venues around the country, the organisers say.
Rregistration for parkrun is once off, while participants should remember to bring their parkrun barcode to the venue to ensure their results are registered.
Most parkruns in South Africa start at 8am, but each venue may be different, so it is worth checking the website of the specific event for their starting time. the Online SPAR Women entries’are s Virtual open for Challenge 2022.
