This year the popular Gugulethu Reconciliation Race enters its 19th year with RCS on board as the title sponsor for the 9th consecutive year of this event. This year’s race day is set to be the best yet, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Cape Town’s oldest township Gugulethu taking place on South Africa’s annual Day of Reconciliation. Costs are 10km Seniors – R57 to R91, 10km Juniors – R35 to R50, 4.2km Fun Run – R30 to R35.
This race, which is among the most anticipated events on the Western Cape’s annual sporting calendar, saw the number of entrants rise steeply to just over 2000 last year hoping to reach more this year with plenty support. The RCS Gugs Race is accessible to runners of all fitness levels and includes a 4.2km as well as a 10km option.
The race has the feel of a family gathering and includes family-friendly entertainment, food and beverage stalls manned by local residents, and a chance to win spot prizes just for showing up on the day of the event.
