Pick n Pay Junior Road Running Series 2013

Central Gauteng Athletics and Pick n Pay are back with the 2013 Junior Road Running Series.

The 2013 series is expected to gain the momentum since there’s also competition for girls team to be made up of girls that participate on series.

There is also an extra prize to be won by a girl athlete who participate in all events and breaks a Pick n Pay record.

The approach is the same but more aggressive in terms of visiting schools and recruit for local club. In a broader perspective, the Province is aiming at linking the local athletics club with schools and other local authorities such as local municipalities, communities, local business, etc.  The event also looks at the role of educating the kids of the Freedom Day Commemoration and what it means to their current life and future. 

The event is fully sponsored by Pick n Pay 2000 and it has been growing from strength to strength with good results. Two girls that dominated in the 5km of the series in the past 2 years are now part of the Central Gauteng Athletics and Queens High School Athletics Academy which started in 2012. 

Some of the prizes at stake are the vouchers for top 5 girls and boy under each category, medals and give-aways. Pick n Pay also provides T-shirts, lunch pack and soft drinks to all participants at the finish of the race. As part of development, we’re also grateful of our efforts and relationship that we have built with the schools through this platform, said Boyce Mfuneko Joko CGA development Officer and Pick n Pay Junior Series Director.

Central Gauteng Athletics wanted to change the future. So, in partnership with Pick n Pay, they took kids off the streets and put them on the race track, giving them hope and a second chance.
