The Jump City Challenge returns to KZN on the 25th of November with it’s unique and exciting brand of racing.

The route will take you to the dizzying heights of Moses Mabhida Stadium, Kingspark stadium, Kingspark swimming pool and the Durban beaches. They don’t just take you through them, they take you over, in, but never around each of these iconic landmarks.

Sign up now, choose your batch and take on Durban in this exciting challenge.

Choose your challenge:-
This year the organisers are adding a brand new race to the structure of the event to cater for all athletic enthusiasts.

The Challenge
9km urban obstacle course covering 3 stadiums along the route with 26 awesome challenges along the way.

The Dash
7km fun run through 3 great stadiums along the way with no obstacles.

We know it is not Christmas yet (but tell that to the shops) and so the organisers are calling this the Christmas edition of the race and athletes can choose if they would like a Santa hat to run in just to get into the spirit of the festive season to follow.

Limited entries are available so head over to the Jump City website to book your spot today!

Durban Botanic Gardens Trail of Lights Gets the Green-light for 2021




 “It has been touch and go as to whether the 2021 event would even be able to take place this year,” says Alene Naidoo, Organiser of The Durban Botanic Gardens Trail of Lights. “Last year was such a disappointment, when we had to close early, due to covid regulations; but we are have received the go-ahead from eThekweni Municipality and barring any major announcements from the President, we are optimistic that the 2021 show WILL go ahead as planned – kicking off on 3 December 2021.  This has been a challenging year in every way and this year’s event offers a celebratory moment for us all.”

Now in its fifth year, The Trail of Lights is a firm fixture on both the City and the Gardens’ festive season calendar,” says Martin Clement, Curator of the historical Gardens.  “We are grateful that our various media partners including East Coast Radio and Independent on Saturday, have joined with us again to bring Durban’s favourite festive event to as many people as possible. We are all desperate for some year-end relaxation and fun and that’s what you’ll get at The Trail of Lights.” 

With the Gardens festooned with thousands of lights, 2021 is sure to delight visitors of all ages, with world class lighting displays, nightly entertainment, charity activations, a food garden and festive characters.

The Trail of Lights will open on 3 December 2021 and run until 2 January 2022.   To meet protocol requirements and ensure the safety of patrons, key operational changes have implemented this year.  Most significantly, the introduction of three entry times at 18:00, 19:00 and 20:00 respectively.  This will allow for social distancing, as families can navigate their way around the trail before the next group arrives. There will be no ticket sales at the door.

The Trail of Lights takes place from 3 December 2021 to the 3 January 2022, excluding Christmas Day, in Africa’s oldest botanical gardens.
