THE STADIUM DASH RETURNS TO JOBURG AFTER A SOLD FIRST EVENT

STEP IT UP & TAKE ON A COMPLETELY UNIQUE KIND OF RACE IN THE LIONS DEN

WHAT IS THE STADIUM DASH?

 

The Stadium Dash is  South Africa's inner city obstacle race, which takes you on an adrenaline pumping obstacle packed course through Stadium's. This race offers 3 options to participants 1) The Dash is an obstacle course covering 6.5km in the precinct, 2) The Stadium Run, a 6.5km fun run through the stadium precinct and the actual stadiums, 3) The Junior, a thrilling 3.5km fun filled obstacle course for the kiddies. We don't just run you to or around them, we take you through, over and inside actual buildings, stadiums, arena's and just about anything we can think of.

 

For participants this is a speed tour offering you a glimpse of the stadiums where legends have played and made history over the years. This is a rare opportunity to actually get to know your city and your heritage, before returning later in the day or on another date to see the hidden gems at a slower pace than the race.

 

Each event features no less than 22 built obstacles designed for all levels of athletes, this excludes the urban landscape which we make full use of in this event. How hard is it? Well, we don't set out to hurt you, but as with anything in life it is relevant to the effort you put in.

 

THE ROUTES

The Dash route features no less than 26 obstacles over the 6.5km course which takes you through up and over Emirates Airline Park, the swimming pool, Joburg Athletics Stadium and much more. Please note this may vary by 10% due to variations in measurement techniques and the complexity of the route.

The Dash route takes athletes along the same course as the challenge, but it will cut out all the obstacles. So this is in fact a fun run through the stadiums and sporting precinct. 

Full route details will be released 2 weeks ahead of the race.

 

For years we have tried and tested technology to get an accurate measurement of the route,

unfortunately given the areas out of reach of satellite and the elevation within buildings,

no pedometer or satellite has been up to the task and unfortunately

none of the team was willing to run with a length of rope to test. 

 

WHAT FEATURES ON THE RUN ROUTE?

 

The run route is the brain child of 4 years of continual experimentation

and pushing the limits of our great city.

Athletes taking part in 2018 will enjoy the following as part of the route:-

 

  • Standard Bank Arena - START / FINISH Venue

  • Emirates Airline Park

  • Johannesburg Athletics Stadium

  • Ellis Park Swimming Pool

  • Johannesburg College

  • Lookout for the announcement of an exciting feature being added to the event in 2018.

4. What to wear?

You will be getting wet, please do not wear any electronic devices or in ear music devices, we need you to be fully aware of your surroundings as this is an urban environment. Wear something you are comfortable getting slightly dirty. We do have a bag drop available . Facility, there is a small fee of R20 for their secure services. What if you cannot swim?

5. Where to park?

There is NO parking at the Arena, please make use of the parking off South Park Lane. This is a multi story parking lot next to Ellis Park. It is secure and guarded. You will be able to walk to the start from there. 

6. Substitutions, Cancellations and refund policy

Substitutions have closed for the event. Here is why? Legally, we cannot replace an athlete without them agreeing to terms and conditions. This creates a serious delay at registration for all athletes if you try this. We often have athletes ask about just having somebody else run in their place. We cannot allow that as we do not have consent to take care of them in case of an emergency and further more they will not be protected by any liability we have.  

Cancellations can be applied up to 14 days ahead of the race, there after we are unable to cancel and refund athletes. Refund policy, before 30 days = 85% refund, within 30 days before the event = 50% refund  and from 14 days prior to the event 0% refund. 

​​​7. Cut off times

We need to remind you that this is a race, not a leisurely walk through the stadiums. 
8. Spectators

There are 2 main vantage points for spectators. 1. From Ellis Park Swimming Pool and the other inside Ellis Park Arena.

9. Event Photography

All race images will be made available from the 8th of August. We will email you with a link.

10. Prizes

To qualify for prize money or other at the race you need to be entered into the Elite Batch as this is a non seeded event. You will also need to be present at the prize giving on the day or you will forfeit your entire prize. Why do we do this? Because we want you to be seen by the other athletes who aspire to be just as tough as you, it is as simple as that. "No show no dough". Prize giving generally happens within 2 hours of the elite batch start time. Stick around, get to know other athletes and then enjoy the prize giving.
