2017 edition of the KFC Valentine’s Night Race

Over 4 000 runners bounce with excitement, minutes before the race.

 

 

PRAEGVILLE – This year was the most successful KFC Valentine 10km Night Race hosted by Randburg Harriers Running Club. [http://www.randburgharriers.co.za/]

Every year runners flock to the club to participate in a love-themed race that sees roads around Malanshof and Praegville being closed. Mixed generations of runners attended the evening, dressed to impress, with some great decorative outfits.

Families, friends, four-legged furry friends and even prams took to the streets.

The race attracts a huge number of novices and occasional runners, who are drawn to the event by the Valentine’s Day theme. The tradition sees runners in all manner of Valentine’s fancy dress, the famous Valentine’s coffee mugs that are handed to all finishers and the after-party in the marquee, where a bar and live entertainment keep the party going until late into the night.
