The Gratitude Run


Lourensford Wine Estate, Somerset West


Saturday, 22 October 2022

Race Info:

On 22 October 2022, running and walking enthusiasts are invited to join Distance for Difference (D4D) at the picturesque Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West for The Gratitude Run 2022.

After two very successful events in 2016 and 2018, Covid unfortunately prevented us from hosting an in-person GRATITUDE Run in 2020 and we were forced to present a virtual run. It was just not the same…This year we are back in full force and super stoked to host a running event in-person again!

Come and show your GRATITUDE for your health and your ability to run or walk. All proceeds, after direct expenses, will go towards D4D (a registered section 21 company and non-profit organisation). We are raising funds for various children charities including Tzadokah Foster Home, Sylvia Frank Foster Home, Kingdom Kids and Esther van Zyl Foster Care – just to name a few.

You can choose one of three ways to participate:

1) 5 Km Fun Run/Walk

Young and old are invited to join in the fun! You can either choose to run or walk the 5 km and set your own pace! Dogs are allowed (one per person, but not without a leash).

Entry Fee: R100 (Adults – 12 years and older), R50 (Children under 12 years)

It is all about team work and supporting your team mates, while they are soaking in the exquisite surrounds of the beautiful Lourensford Wine Estate. There will be live music, prizes, lucky draws, enthusiastic athletes and sponsors supporting a worthy cause!
