As Durban Fun Season nears, exciting events are starting to pop up. Joining the list is one of our favourites – the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk! Durbanites from all walks of life come together once a year to walk or run the beautiful route from Ushaka Marine World to People’s Park. The combination of the picturesque Golden Mile, joining forces with your fellow Durbanites and getting in some exercise is a real winner.
What makes this year so special? We’re so glad you asked! For the first time, a 5km Fun Run has been added to the event. If you live in the fast-lane then this is definitely for you. It is limited to 3000 entries, so make sure your name is on the list!
Durban, you’re our sole-mate, so let’s walk this together! Carry on reading for all the must-know info.
