"Shape" up!

So...it's nearly spring (can someone please tell Mr Winter this fact) and that means it's nearly time for shorts and dresses. And that means getting into shape so we don't look like we have been curled up indoors for 4 months with nothing for company but hot chocolate and sweet treats. 
So, Shape Magazine & Total Sport are challenging all you ladies to a 10k run in Joburg, Durban & Stellenbosh...

How it works

  • Register– it’s free! You will receive a confirmation email welcoming you to the programme.
  • Your first training schedule will be emailed to you on the first Friday after your registration. Thereafter you will receive a training schedule every Friday for 12 weeks.
  • You are required to run 3 times per week.
I haven't managed to run further than my bedroom to the fridge, so it will be my first race...ever! So no more excuses, get those tackies on and get out there!
