Loads of prizes! Overall winners, best age graded... AND then the fantastic One in Five spot prizes from our sponsors (running watches, clothes, shoes etc) - every fifth runner will receive a prize!

Enjoy refreshing drinks by the finishing line (A beer for the +21 year olds).  Prizes, age groups, and raffles... plus a beautiful 'keeper' ADIDAS Shoe4Africa T shirt to all entrants.

Both races offer great swags and prizes at very affordable price. Register for one or both Shoe4Africa races!
