Run and walk 4 Bibles

November 30 @ 5:30 am - 5:00 pm

I’m convinced that by this time some of you might have thought that the Run & Walk 4 Bibles in memory of Riana Van Niekerk has left the running scene but we are very excited to announce that the arrangements for the 2019 Race is all systems firing.

This time around we very privileged to present the traditional 5km, 10km, 21,1km and for the first time in 2019:

A full marathon 42,2km and the best yet is – IT is a Comrades Qualifier.

The idea of running or walking for a good cause has become an appealing and popular family fun event. 2018 was a GREAT year for the Run & Walk 4 Bibles AGN recognized half marathon. It was the 7th anniversary of this race and also the third race that was run in memory of Riana van Niekerk as we payed tribute to the well-known athlete Riana van Niekerk. (18 June 1976 to 13 February 2016) The Run and Walk 4 Bibles will always be run in commemoration of Riana.
