About the SPAR Women’s Challenge

The Tshwane leg of the SPAR Women’s Challenge has grown from humble beginnings to one of the world’s biggest road races. This challenge is the most popular and inclusive road race in South Africa, attracting the country’s top professional female athletes and thousands of recreational runners. The race began in 1996 with just 600 entrants racing along the University of Pretoria’s Groenkloof campus. In 2019, more than 25 000 entrants from around Gauteng run through Centurion’s streets, starting at SuperSport Park Stadium, looping back along a 5km and 10km route.

This year we are so excited to see you all again in person on 3 August 2024!

Participants include Olympians, top age-group competitors, and thousands who run for charity and to achieve their own personal goals. An estimated 15 000 spectators turn out in support of the event along with hundreds of print and broadcast media.

The Tshwane SPAR Women’s Challenge is the premier event of the Gauteng North road running calendar. The Tshwane race is a key part of the SPAR Grand Prix series – the only competition of its kind in South African road running. The Grand Prix series allows the country’s most outstanding female runners to score points across six SPAR Women’s Challenge 10km races and be eligible for cash prizes and other rewards.

2024 Theme

The theme #ChooseYou serves as a mighty rallying cry for women participating in the SPAR Women’s Challenge Tshwane. It encourages women to prioritise themselves, their dreams, and their wellbeing amidst life’s daily demands. Whether running the Challenge or following the campaign online, women are urged to embrace self-care, self-empowerment, and self-determination. #ChooseYou is a reminder that by investing in themselves, women unlock their full potential and inspire others to do the same.

In the 2024 SPAR Women’s Challenge, #ChooseYou calls us to action, urging us to chase our dreams and empower ourselves. As we recall the camaraderie and determination of last year’s race, we stand at the brink of a new adventure. #ChooseYou encapsulates self-determination and self-care, emphasising our individual worth and the importance of nurturing our aspirations. In a world where we often prioritise others, neglecting ourselves, #ChooseYou reminds us of our capacity for positive change. By focusing on our growth and fulfilment, we become catalysts for empowerment. This theme embodies the essence of empowerment, by investing in ourselves, we inspire others.

As we prepare for the SPAR Women’s Challenge, let’s embrace #ChooseYou. With courage and determination, let’s chase our dreams, knowing that by empowering ourselves, we illuminate a path of possibility for every woman who follows in our footsteps.
