I am very happy to find out that the Men’s Health Lighthouse Ten is going to happen again in 2010 as it was very difficult finding details on it.
The Men’s Health 10km Lighthouse run takes place on Wednesday, 3 March 2010 along the Sea Point promenade at 6:15pm.
The eight in a series of annual lighthouse races the 10km run starts at the Mouille Point Lighthouse in the direction of the V&A Waterfront. It then doubles back along the promenade toward Bantry Bay before returning to the finish at the Lighthouse.
Over 1800 runners are expected to complete the popular Men’s Health 10km run and collect this years “Hangklip 1960” medal. A refreshment tent and a live DJ will keep the spectators entertained as they cheer their loved ones along as the sun sets on the horizon.
Registration opens at 4:45pm on Wednesday, 3 March. Costs: licensed seniors (R25), licensed juniors (R15), unlicensed seniors (R40), unlicensed juniors (R25). The event is organised in conjunction with the Atlantic Athletic Club.
