What Is The Discovery Retro Run?

The Discovery Retro Run is the coolest new run to hit Cape Town, powered by KFM 94.5. It’s for the avid runner, the social runner and even the haven’t-run-yet runner. Basically, it’s for everyone! Participants can choose to run a 5km race, or for the more daring, take on the 8km challenge, both timed. So, get ready to lace up, pull up your Bobbie socks, and run for real or run for fun. Once you’ve done your dash, felt the burn and crossed the finish line, you’ll get to hang out and party with KFM’s DJs and personalities at the epic after-party, definitely something you don’t want to miss!
