Posted on 18 February 2010
Prof Cheryl de la Rey, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of the University of Pretoria, will officially start the annual Tuks Race on Saturday, 20 February in the ABSA Tuks Stadium.
Prof De la Rey, herself an enthusiastic road runner, will however not take part.
The Tuks Race, presented by the Tuks Marathon Club, includes a half marathon (21.1 km), 10 km and 5 km race. The Tuks Race has AGN Championship status which should see all the local greats in action. The organisers gear themselves for between 45000 and 5000 participants.
The Tuks Race starts at 06:00. The 5 km race will only take place on the TuksSport Campus, but the half marathon and 10 km will be along a route including the Hatfield Campus, Lunnon Road, Lynnwood Road and University Road.
The water points will be manned by sponsors like Bestmed, FNB, Boom Alive and Classic Gardens.
Registration starts at 04:30.
