Get moving Joburg – the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run is here!

Joburg’s hippest race – the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run promises to get people moving in more ways than one. The race – and after party with live music from SA’s top DJs – is set to light up the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on Saturday, 30 May 2020.

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.

I love that the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run 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.

Thando Makhunga, 947 station manager

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.

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.

Entries are now open for the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run and are selling for R295. Ticket price includes a wrist band (to gain access to the venue), temporary timing chip, an exclusive Rhythm Run t-shirt, access to the after-party and delivery participants race pack.

The Speed Lap is an exclusive double lap limited to 1000 entrants only. This race is for the speedsters so you will be required to complete the first lap within 35 minutes or less. The first three women and the first three men to complete the two laps of the run will receive a well-deserved cash prize.
