Medihelp Sunrise Monster 2017
06 March 2017
At sunrise (6:03 am) this past Saturday, thousands of runners took to the spectacular scenic byway, stretching over 12 different suburbs around the Harlequin’s club in Groenkloof.
The event celebrated its 40th consecutive year and is still recognized as the ultimate Comrades conditioner. All participants who completed their respective races (5 km Baby Monster, 10 km Mini Monster, 32 km Sunrise Monster), received a free T-shirt and commemorative 40th year medal. These energy sapping, endurance testing races, are clearly not for the faint hearted!
MEDIHELP Medical Scheme is still the main sponsor of the event and with their support the race has gone from strength to strength, with an annual increase in the number of participants.
Check out what the almost 8 000 participants experienced in the 32 km and 10 km races and in the 5 km fun run. Video provided by Medihelp.
