QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
So you've never taken part in one of these before, get ready for an epic experience in your city, but first let us answer some of your questions about the Energizer Jump City Challenge.
WHAT IS THE JUMP CITY CHALLENGE?
No secrets here it is effectively a urban based obstacle course through your cities. Add to that the heritage of the awesome landmarks that you run through and all the thrills and spills of 22 obstacles along the way.
Please note:- Due to the nature of this event and the usage of headlights and other flashing lights on route we must caution any persons with sensitivity to strobe lights, lazers or bright flashes that entering this event is completely at your own risk.
WILL YOU BE GETTING WET?
Well, ummm yes! You will not be going into the ocean or into any of the marine attractions, just the wet and wild part of uShaka and the rides within there.
HOW OLD MUST I BE TO COMPETE?
We do not impose an age restriction, we advise 12 years and up but all minors should run accompanied by a legal guardian on route.
HOW TOUGH IS THE CHALLENGE?
There is no shortage of races in SA that are set to hurt you and make you bleed, this is not one. We aim to thrill you and give you a full experience of the urban landscape. The obstacles may be challenging but are certainly achievable by all levels of athletes. The idea is to see parts of the city that you would otherwise never be able to run through, the obstacles are cool and a great addition but by no means the main feature in comparison to what is on route.
The awesome crew at Pam Golding, Revite and Shift Concepts will be providing race packs to all finishers as they cross the line, not before the race to save you the trouble of going backwards and forwards to your car.
Bring your friends and bring your family. Each person is timed individually so you just need to make sure you are entered into the same batch as them to run together. We invite you to get dressed up as there are great prizes on route for eager athletes with zest.
There are 2 water points on route and 1 at the finish line.
We have your details, so please just arrive ready to jam at least 45 minutes prior to your start time. Registration will be closing at 19:00. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
We have ample secure parking in the underground parking at Parkade B and C within uShaka Marine World.
