Joburg’s hippest race – the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run promises to get people moving in more ways than one.
The race – and afterparty with live music from SA’s top DJs – is set to light up the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on Saturday, 30 May 2020.
Conquer the 4.7 km race or double up to 9km for bragging rights and bonus Vitality points. The celebration doesn’t stop at the finish line. The 947 DJs will be on the decks with the hottest tunes for the after-party.
Thando Makhunga, 947 Station manager said “I love that the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run event is a party-and-a-half, with a night running experience at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit that is unique to Joburg. Whether it is fun, music or fitness you are after, the race will connect you to an awesome side of Joburg, and the chance to experience your frenetic city in a brand-new way.”
About the Rhythm Run
Bring your crew, family, colleagues and gym buddies along to take part in this unique event that brings Joburg together for a fun, social evening.
Explaining Discovery’s involvement in this event,Iona Mclean, Head of Experiential Marketing at Discovery said “Through Discovery Vitality, our behavioural research shows that we’re all heavily influenced by the behaviours and characteristics of the company we keep. Working out with a crowd can enhance exercise performance and improve consistency, duration and motivation. That’s why we’re so supportive of group events like outdoor mass participation events. Along with increased accountability, exercising with others offers a greater sense of connection and satisfaction.”
“The Discovery 947 Rhythm Run offers a unique opportunity to get active; and is another way we are encouraging South Africans to be more active. Driven by our global commitment to get 100 million people moving 20% more over the next five years; this race is among many that we support in our mission to help make people healthier and enhance their lives,” Mclean concluded.
