There are three walking routes to choose from; 5km, 10km and 20km. There is also an exciting and all-new 9km fun run as part of this firm family favourite event. Participants in all events will make their way along the promenade, from uShaka Marine World to Moses Mabhida People’s Park.

In another first this year; some of East Coast Radio’s presenters will also walk alongside participants. Catch the ECR Breakfast team doing the 5km walk, Jane Linley-Thomas and Thandolwethu walking 10km, the Drive team doing the 20km walk and Damon Beard in the 9km fun run.

A portion of every entry fee received will go towards Saint Giles, a non-profit organisation for the disabled. The organisation was identified as the service and support they provide the disabled in Durban through their remedial gymnasium and work centre.
