SANDTON - Popular music race Hyundai Rock the Run returns to Sandton on 1 March.

The event which uniquely combines running with live music performances is set to rock the Sandton community once again. Run, sing and dance to the beat with more than 10 000 athletes, families and friends as they take to the Sandton streets with music stages positioned at key points on the beautiful and scenic route.

The event consists of 5km, 10km and 21.1km routes and starts at Mushroom Farm Park, home of the landmark Hyundai balloon. All participants will then gain access to the massive after party concert, at the same venue, featuring some of South Africa’s biggest bands and performers.

Entries are now open and the event promises to be bigger and better than before with a number of exiting enhancements, including:

  • Performances by Mi Casa, Matthew Mole and Mango Groove
  • A new 5km social fun run which is open to all ages
  • A fun dress-up theme which encourages all participants to dress-up as their favourite rock or pop performer and stand in-line to win fantastic spot prizes at the event
  • A massive ‘Wall of Noise’, which will provide more than 400m of music, packed with DJs and pumping tracks
  • More music on the route than ever before with live choirs, orchestras and buskers adding to the musical experience
  • Freebies galore – the first 5 000 participants to book their 10km and 21.1km tickets will receive a complimentary Rock the Run running shirt.

Rock the Run will provide quicker and easier race pack collection before the event at Sandton City. Once participants have completed the race, families, friends and spectators will be able to continue the fun with live entertainment, food stalls, a car exhibition, a kiddies fun-corner and a beer tent. The event will not only provide families and athletes with a full day of entertainment, but will also support The Sports Trust by donating a percentage of proceeds from every entry towards this worthy charitable cause.
