RUN


When is the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run
The Discovery 947 Rhythm Run will take place on Saturday, 2 June at 17:30. The Run will start and finish at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.
What is the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run?
The Discovery 947 Rhythm Run is your chance to light up the night with a high energy dash around the track at the pristine Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit for the second ever Discovery 947 Rhythm Run.
Last year’s sold out event saw over 7 000 runners create a sea of orange that snaked along the course as the sun set and the lights of the city came up. A pumping soundtrack provided by some of SA’s hottest DJs took the party well into the night.
2018 promises all this and more, with another once-a-year chance to take to the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on foot, to test your pace over 4.7km or a double lap of 9km. And the fun’s not over when you cross the finish line as the epic after-party will once again keep you on your feet for a double workout – that really doesn’t feel like work at all!

Timing tag
In your race pack, you will also find your timing tag with your race number printed on it. You must attach your timing tag to your running shoe.
You need to run with the timing tag assigned to you because it contains crucial information for the race organisers. It is vital in an emergency and for accurate race results.
