The Spar Women’s Virtual Challenge is an inclusive race allowing people of all shapes and sizes to run or walk at their own pace from any location.

SPRING is fast approaching and the new season of the 2021 SPAR Women’s Virtual Challenge set for September 4 is upon us.

This year’s race is just a month away and time is running to secure a place on the virtual start line. The online entries are set to close on August 15.

The theme for this year’s edition of the 2021 marathon is: #LiveLimitless. There are no limits to how entrants can approach the race, whether they want to do it competitively to beat their personal best or make it a fun-filled family activity.

The Spar Women’s Virtual Challenge is an inclusive race allowing people of all shapes and sizes to run or walk at their own pace from any location.

In addition, the race is geared for Covid-19 times where the health and safety of all entrants is of primary importance. They can physically distance themselves from other participants as each person can run from any point of their choosing.

The Virtual Challenge has, meanwhile, attracted some of the country’s strongest female role models. Among them is Spar Proteas netball captain Bongi Msomi who has been a friend of the Challenge over the years.

By entering this year’s race participants can make a real difference in the lives of young girls. For every entry received a pack of sanitary pads will be donated to a charity helping to keep a girl in school through the Spar Petals Project which advocates for a shame-free education for all young women.

“Every female out there understands more the need for sanitary towels,” said Msomi.

“One entry from you means you will be helping a girl child out there not to miss a day of either school or sport because they can’t afford sanitary towels.
