27 For Freedom Road Race

February 10, 2018 @ 6:30 am - 10:00 am

R34 - R102

All the events start in front of the statue of Nelson Mandela at the beginning of his walk to freedom‘ on February 13th, 1990 and progress through a scenic route that passes the Madiba House, the prison.

The 27 km route continues through the adjacent wine farms to finish on the sports arena near the entrance. But 27 for Freedom is more than a running event. It is an experience everyone should participate in at least once in their lifetime. It is a historic, yet fun-filled, family day of reflection, celebration and nation-building for the tens of thousands that will participate from across the sports, social, business and political landscape. It contributes directly to the preservation and promotion of the Nelson Mandela legacy and the historic `right of passage’ that his walk to freedom represents to current and future generations of South Africans and all freedom loving people.
