If your company would like to enter 20 or more employees, there is a three-step process:
Please collect your T-shirt, race number and other goodies at Race Pack Collection at Moses Mabida Stadium, from Thursday, 16 May to Saturday, 18 May 2019.
Walk to your own beat! Your T-shirt comes with a canvas for you to personalize it and insert the title of your favourite track.
Discovery Vitality members will earn fitness points for completing their selected event. Points will be automatically uploaded and will take up to four days to reflect on the Vitality Points Monitor.
Durban Metro Police will close several roads. Make sure you note these so that your commute to the event is smooth and hassle-free. You will need to plan your drive to avoid these roads.
Parking facilities are available at both the start and finish. Buses will rotate between People’s Park and uShaka Marine World from 05:30 until 12:30. You can catch a bus from the finish area to the start area before or after your walk.
Walkers must complete the course distance they entered before 12:00. Walkers on the road after 12:00 will be deemed to have retired. (Sweep vehicles will collect all walkers who are still en route at this time)
Refreshment stations will be on the route for all distances. Look at the route maps to see where each refreshment stand will be. No personal seconding will be allowed.
Walkers enjoy 5km of majestic scenery on the Durban promenade, proceeding north on Snell Parade, turning left into Athlone Drive. They turn immediately right onto Ruth First Highway contra-flow to cross the Umgeni River. We veer right up the first on-ramp, turn left and take an immediate right to continue on Waterkant Road.
Are you ready to add some soul to your beat?

Simply drop them off at the Discovery offices in Umhlanga, East Coast Radio House, race pack collection day or on big walk day and we will donate them to the Sole To Sole charity – a cause dedicated to distributing shoes among the less fortunate
