WeRunVenda 2020 Goes Virtual
WeRunVenda 2020 Virtual Run is a celebration of the 42km or Less training run which traditionally takes place on the last Saturday of December in Venda (Thohoyandou). The event has been taking place for the past 5 years making it the oldest training run in the Limpopo Province, South Africa.
Due to the unprecedented Covid-19 times, the popular WeRunVenda training run will be following the recent trend of social events in 2020 by hosting a virtual running race. The WeRunVenda team has created a unique experience for participants wherein athletes will complete the 42,2km or Less virtually in their respective locations.
WeRunVenda 2020 Virtual Run is going to be one of the most exciting and interactive virtual run of the Covid-19 season. 2020 brought a very unexpected and novel situation with many events being cancelled and runners taking to their backyards to consistently run during lockdown to stay fit and in some cases achieving some unbelievable feats.
Participants are encouraged to strictly observe all lockdown regulations that are aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19. Families can run together but MUST observe social distancing guidelines and wear face masks at all times as advised by government.
