Hope Church Virtual Run/Walk

We’ve hosted an annual Night Run with hundreds of participants for 8 consecutive years. Due to current Covid restrictions we’re hosting a virtual 5km fun run/walk instead in 2021.

Good news is that we’re now allowed to gather in groups of 250 people outdoors! Definitely get your family & friends together to join you!


Join us at our Garden Route Dam!

We plan to have volunteers at our Garden Route dam (near the dam wall) between 8am & 4pm on race day, Saturday, 13 March. Look out for red shirts! You can come at any time during this time frame to walk or run your 5km. On arrival, our volunteers will explain a beautiful & marked off 5km route to you. Our team can also help you to time yourself & log your time.


What happens after the run/walk?

Join us at Hope Church any time between 8am & 6pm to have your photo taken at our PHOTO BOOTH! The first 300 finishers will each receive an Olà Ice-Cream! There will be good coffee, great company and an awesome vibe!


Not from our George community or you prefer to run your own route?

You can make use of a fitness app called STRAVA. You can create your own profile by going to www.strava.com and create a profile for yourself. Search for Hope Church George in clubs and add as a club. On race day (13 March) you just switch on your fitness device or STRAVA and the results of the day will automatically upload. Our current lockdown restrictions allow you to run/walk any time between 4am and 12pm. (Please note that if you’re from our George community & need our help, we’ll be at the Garden Route dam only between 8am & 4pm on race day.)


Is there a cut off time?

Our cut off time is 90minutes.


What is the cost?

Cost per adults are R50 each & kids 13 & under don’t need to pay. All proceeds will go toward the desperate needs our Community Churches in Wilderness Heights & Protea Park face.


I want to register! How do I do that?

Please click here to register. Once you’re registered & we’ve received your R50 payment, you will receive your unique race number. Your number will be emailed to you. You can print it yourself or we can print it at church where you can collect it from.

Kids under 13 are free – you don’t need to register if you are under 13. Please let Agneshia, our Kids Church pastor know if a child is running with you. We can email their FREE unique race number to you, or we can print it & you collect it from church. Agneshia’s email address is agneshia@hopechurch.org.za.
