- 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!
