John Nugent Memorial Runs
(42.2km, 21.1km, 10km 0r 5km)
The Energy Lab Athletic Company is proud to present Upington’s premier running festival.
Hosted by the popular Desert Palace Resort and Casino, runners can choose from to run either a full marathon (Two Oceans and Comrades Qualifier), half marathon, 10km or 5km fun run.
The relatively flat routes take runners along the banks of the Orange River and through magnificent vineyards and pecan orchards. The early start means that runners don’t need to fear the the famed Upington heat.
Finishers all receive a medal and the racing snakes will be competing for generous cash prizes generously made available by our title sponsor the Desert Palace Resort and Casino.
