As winter approaches, many people are wrapping up in layers and retreating indoors. But, not Durban! This season means that it’s time for one of our favourite events…The Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk!

Last year was a huge success, and this year is starting no differently. Entries were closed on 28 April due to the Walk reaching its capacity…of 30 000 people, exceeding last year’s numbers! So, if you’re all registered, get your running outfit ready and get pumped to support healthy living while walking through our great city.
