Discovery Vitality has launched the Discovery Vitality Run Series in partnership with four of Johannesburg’s most established running clubs, Old Eds, Wanderers, Randburg Harriers and Rockies Road Races.

“The aim is to motivate people of all fitness levels and to encourage more people to love running,” said Craig Nossel, head of Discovery Vitality Wellness.

The series will kick off on the 6 August with the Old Eds Road Race. Mark Mohring, chairman of the Old Edwardian Athletics Club said, “We at Old Eds Sports Club are thrilled to be included in the inaugural Discovery Vitality Run Series. This event will ensure the sustainability of road running in South Africa for many years to come and we are excited about the role we will be playing in this.”

The second race in the series is the Wanderers Road Race. “The club’s mission is to support running and walking as an agnostic and recreational activity and encourage participation by all ages and sexes from all social backgrounds and fitness levels,” said Dylan Burgess, chairman of Wanderers Athletics Club.

The series will then move onto the Randburg Harriers Challenge. “To say that we are excited is an understatement. We feel very privileged to be a part of the Discovery Vitality Run Series and can’t wait to put on the event of the year,” said Liesl Koch, race director at Randburg Harriers Running Club.

The series concludes with the Rockies Road Race which attracts about 4 000 runners and walkers each year. “Rockies is a social running club and we offer a great forum and support for people to do what they love – running,” said Saul Levin, chairperson of Rockies Running Club.

Runners will receive a limited edition Discovery Vitality Run Series medal at each race. Those who complete all four races stand a chance to win one of 10 Asics hampers valued at R3 500.

Nossel added, “We are excited about this inaugural Discovery Vitality Run Series. By supporting these iconic races, we want to ensure their longevity while supporting the running community and getting more people active.”

Vitality members who run in the series will also be able to receive vitality points depending on the length of the run they participate in. For more information or to enter the Vitality Run Series, visit
