The Discovery 947 Rhythm Run has two race distances; a single lap of 4.7km and a double lap of 9.4km. There will be music pumping along the route to keep participants going and the festivities will continue beyond the finish line with live DJs, food stalls and entertainment.
Furthermore, Discovery Vitality Active Rewards members can activate the 'Shoe Booster' benefit and earn up to 100% cash back on the latest running shoes at Sportsmans Warehouse countrywide. Vitality members will also receive 1,100 points for completing the 9.4km distance and 800 points for the 4.7km distance.
Iona Maclean, head of experiential marketing at Discovery said: “We know that exercising in the colder months in Joburg requires some motivation. Vitality data shows that gym visits are 9% lower than the year average during the colder winter months.
“We also know from over 300,000 of our Vitality Active Rewards members that getting active takes a little extra push in terms of being rewarded, so we are excited to partner with Primedia to bring you a safe exercise space as well as exciting entertainment.”
Anele Mdoda, 947 radio presenter who will be part of #Discovery947Squad said: “It’s much easier to train and race with your crew than it is on your own and we’re looking for the best running buddies to include in our #Discovery947Squad. These peeps will need to keep us going and make sure we have a blast along the route.”
