PetroSA Marathon and Development Run

PetroSA MARATHON AND DEVELOPMENT RUN

The PetroSA 5km, 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km road race takes place annually as part of the Mossel Bay Sports Festival. This year it will be held on 27 September 2014, and in its quest to achieve IAAF Bronze Label Status (possibly a first for South Africa and Africa) has left no stone unturned to ensure a top elite field representing no less than seven African nations. With a total of almost R600,000 prize money and incentives up for grabs.

The official Media Launch will be held on the 14th of August 2014 at PetroSA in Mossel Bay and more information will be available then, but in the meantime we would like to direct your attention to the annual PetroSA Development run that will be held on Tuesday 23 September 2014 at D’Almeida Sports grounds in Mossel Bay.

Remember your 1st pair of running shoes? Many kids don’t even have school shoes. Please help us to make a difference by bringing hope to children, one pair of shoes at a time. We are asking you to please dig deep, empty your cupboards, kids closets, search out and donate pre-loved running shoes to children and teens in need.

You can make a child’s dream a reality. We are collecting all over South Africa. Shoes can also be dropped off at the ASWD Office. Let’s try get to 1000 pairs this month as marathon fever hits South Africa. Please open you hearts to these children and spread this amazing and heart-warming initiative between PetroSA Marathon and Shoes For Planet Earth.
