The Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk, the biggest outdoor participative event in KwaZulu-Natal, is back and better than ever! The family favourite event has two new additions bound to make this year’s instalment a memorable one.
This year you can walk for an even greater cause than getting active and having fun. The event’s newest partner is Sole2Sole, a local initiative that collects and distributes pre-owned shoes for the underprivileged. Members of the public, whether you’re participating in the event or not, are encouraged to take part in the initiative by dropping off pre-loved shoes at the designated drop-off points – the East Coast Radio House in Umhlanga, race pack collection day or the day of the event.
That’s not all! In line with this year’s theme, listeners can send song requests via SMS and then literally #WalkToTheBeat of their favourite tracks as the East Coast Radio presenters read out their personal shout-outs.
As usual, the Big Walk offers 3 walking routes (5km, 10km and 20km) and a 9km fun run. The day will start at uShaka Marine World, and come to an end at People’s Park. Aside from the scenery, the routes promise live entertainment, special attractions for kids and your favourite East Coast Radio presenters! The fun doesn’t stop when cross the finish line though, as there’ll be plenty to do and see in People’s Park.
Race pack collection will take place on Thursday, 16 May and Friday, 17 May from 10am – 7pm and Saturday, 18 May from 1oam – 2pm at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
So, whether you’re an avid athlete or you just enjoy good music and a leisurely walk, the Discovery East Coast Radio Big Walk is made for you!
