Run Zone Athletics Club hosted our first inaugural Valentines Fun Run night trail event - the Run Zone Laser Light Night Trail at the Randpark Golf Club on 13 February 2019.
The fun trail run showcased a 5km & 8km trail route for all ages, members and non-members.
Come rain or more rain, the Run Zone Valentines Laser Light Night Trail was all lights, love, camera and action! Despite major challenges with excessive downpours, traffic, loadshedding affecting all areas and suppliers alike - all operations ran smoothly without any delay and we managed to deliver an awesome and adventourous event. This is when we say we love what we do and can only truly thank our people for believing in us too!
Participants and supporters arrived in LOVELY Valentines costumes and were welcomed at registration to collect their participating arm bands and prop up with glow in the dark extras. The atmospehere filled up fast with fun at the LOVE corner where memorable moments were captured at a prop filled photo-booth (Compliments by Carmen Brindley) to snap some shots of the best dressed Valentines atire. Whether coupled or single, our guests mingled to love tunes and entertainment.
It was fast to the start line with our theme song (David Guetta - I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night) counting down to the moment we had all been waiting for! On your marks, get set, and a smoking hot start was ignited with the laser light show blast at the start!
More than a par for the course on this route, we had some seriously determined die hards hitting the trail on Randpark Golf Club outskirts. It was more than water under the bridge where we had some overflow at one intersection on the route which was the tough talk of the race! A welcomed water point was found at 4km, where the trail split the 5km and 8km die hards to the end. All finsishers found a romantic candle lit flaming finish - where all were handed an official Run Zone finishers medal and an Energizer slush cup to take away.
The evening closed off with an energized ending at prize giving with Mr E from our main sponsor Energizer to hand over some fun giveways for the top finishers, best dressed and various other prizes.
FROM THE START TO THE FINISH - FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, WE THANK ALL OUR PARTICIPANTS, SUPPORTERS, SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS FOR SHARING THIS AMAZING EVENING WITH US! YOU HAVE ALL OFFICIALLY BEEN LOVE ZONED!
Special thanks to Big Cheese & Lil Cheese for putting this event together with all their hearts! 💙😍💘
