MP Titans Road Race
The JP21 Foundation and Mitchells Plain Titans will continue to partner up and host the 11th JP21 MITCHELLS PLAIN TITANS RACE 2018, with date confirmed for the 24th November
The race plays an integral part in the JP21 FOUNDATION core mandate, to promote healthy and active lifestyles in the communities of Mitchells Plain and Strandfontien and give those communities something to get excited about. Creating a safe environment where young kids and families can enjoy the opportunity of being active and having fun.
It is the JP21 FOUNDATION 3rd year involved in this race, we are excited by what this race represents, it’s a sense of optimism and its and excellent platform to promote our programs and activities. The race bridges the divide, it brings communities from all over Cape Town together, the race slogan highlights this; “TOGETHER WE CAN”
We are proud of the strides the race has made over the past 2 years, with greater emphasis on marketing and better social media traction we enjoyed bigger numbers, a total of 3000 runners participated across the popular 5km walk, 10km fun run and the 21km half marathon. A total of 3500 people were actively involved in making this race a success. We enjoyed the company of various services providers, community leaders, schools, media, race officials, sports clubs and the neighbors around the area.
It is our goal to raise that number to 4500 runners, targeting more schools and novice runners.
Some of the activities include:
- Fun and interactive water tables
- Drum Majorettes performing at the end line
- The Local minstrels entertaining as runners approach the finish line
- Face Painting and games for kids
- Prizes for runners and public
- Stage for local acts and prize giving
- Food Trucks
This race is unique as proceeds are ploughed back into the community through the MP TITANS athletics program in schools and the JP21 FOUNDATION programs within the Mitchells Plain community.
