Nike Designs Heritage Race For Human Rights In South Africa
10km race lets participants pay homage to the country's tumultuous history.
The Nike Run Free, Run Jozi campaign kicked off this week and revealed a distinct route that will allow runners to experience and pay homage to various heritage sites in Johannesburg, South Africa. The night race will be held on 21 March, which also deliberately falls on Human Rights Day.
Organizers are expecting about 10,000 runners to participate in the 10km run where they will experience a ‘one-of-a-kind-feeling’ as they are encouraged with energetic music and motivational water points throughout the race. Runners will pass through prominent landmarks, including City Hall, Luthuli House, Constitutional Hill, Jeppe police station, and popular streets like Bree and Market.
