Lion of Africa 21.1

Less than a week after the serious climbs of the Kloof Nek Classic sees the Lion of Africa Half Marathon. 

The route is hilly and covers similar areas to the Hohenort 15km. The organisers have made several improvements over the years to prevent congestion at the finish between the various races happening at the same time. The 10km is not a flat race but the hills are not too bad and first half is quite flat

The Lion of Africa event comprises a Half Marathon, 10km road race and the Philip Rabinowitz 10 km Walk, as well as a 5km fun run. The race walk is named in memorial of Philip Rabinowitz (1904-2008) the fastest 100 year old to sprint 100m [Wiki]
