Cape Town – 4 November 2016: Due primarily to security concerns with the ongoing protests at UCT, the St Luke’s Hospice Super Hero Trail Run that was scheduled to take place on Sunday 20 November 2016, has been postponed until further notice.
“The ongoing protest action at UCT has raised concerns for the safety of participants at this year’s event and has been the catalyst to postpone until 2017. The event will also be repositioned at another venue outside of the Table Mountain National Park as the compulsory R100 per participant permit fee (76% of the 7km entry fee) has forced the event to be exclusive rather than inclusive. We really want to make this event as affordable as possible to encourage runners & walkers from all over the greater Cape Town to come and enjoy the spirit for which this event has been intended” said Owen Middleton, Founder and Managing Director of Wildrunner.
“All paid entrants will be refunded in full within the next 10 business days,” added Middleton.
