THE BIG WEEK IS HERE! The JumpStart Challenge kicked off early on Monday 27 February – and the fun and action will keep on rolling until Sunday 5 March.
If you haven’t entered yet, it’s not too late!
Entries for the virtual JumpStart Challenge are open until midnight on 5 March. You can participate anywhere in the world – from Durban to Dubai.
Physical entries have closed online but you can still enter in person at Holla Trails this weekend. It will be quick and easy to sign up and pay by Zapper – just arrive early and give yourself enough time to register before your event. You can check your event start times below.
There will be awesome giveways at Holla Trails, including prizes for the best hero dress-up, branded caps, participation medals, goodies and give-aways!
The Glide & Ride Cup is also ready for lift off on Saturday 4 March, at Holla Trails. This mini ‘grand prix’ will see kids on balance bikes zooming around a safe pump track, in a series of heats leading to a grand finale and a big winner. It’s for children aged 2.5 to 4.5 years old, ensuring that the JumpStart Challenge 2023 offers something exciting for every member of the family.
Kids can bring their own balance bikes or use a bike provided by Glide & Ride. The cup begins at 8:30am – so join us at Holla Trails and register in person at 8am.
We’ve already had some beautiful virtual activations, including a full-on studio session at Drivetrain Academy in Ballito, a bush ride at Holla Trails, and a morning run along the uMhlanga promenade by Manifest Yoga Studio/Goodthings Coffee.
Enthusiastic teams from Miladys and Mr Price Sport also rallied together for a run/walk in Durban on 28 February; while Mr Price Money is holding a cool virtual run/walk on 3 March. Thank you all for making every step or cycle count! (Please scroll down for photos.)
