Welcome to 1000km Challenge

In short the 1000km Challenge is about the joy of running and walking as many races as you can or want to attain a set goal. You will have fun, meet new people, see beautiful places and experience great races. If you are ready step over your boundaries into the future!

Each challenge season we choose a charity which will receive a R10.00 donation from each entry received for the 1000km Challenge. In 2011-2 it was the Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre, in 2012-3 it was the Meals on Wheels Community Service Miracle, in 2013-4 it was StopRhinoPoaching, in 2014-5 it was SA Guide Dogs for the Blind, in 2015-6 The African Pangolin Working Group and in 2016-7 the National Sea Rescue Institute will benefit. Our big hearted challengers have donated around R84000.00 to charity in 26 years!
