This year SPAR is uniting with the 25 000 runners taking part in the 2017 Pretoria SPAR Women’s Challenge to prove that together there is nothing we cannot do – under this year’s race theme, BETTER TOGETHER.

SPAR’s belief in working together originates from the vision of our Dutch founder, Adriaan van Well, when he established our organisation back in 1932. That original sentiment is as relevant today as it was back then – that we can all benefit by working together. Our belief in working together with the community is founded on the conviction that our customers are our pillars. Working with our customers is incredibly important to us as this enables us to give back to our community – which is what SPAR is all about.

One person can make a true difference but together we have the strength and the ability change the lives of those in our community who need us most. Join us on 5 August 2017 and see for yourself that we are truly better together. The nationwide interest and participation in this race is inspiring and it all comes together when over 25 000 women run side by side on race day as one big, happy SPAR family.

Every year numerous charities and organizations in need of funding benefit from the race proceeds. The 2016 beneficiaries are: Chrysalis Foundation, Jacaranda FM’s Good Morning Angels, Irene Homes, Zoleka Mandela Foundation, Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer, Hanna Charity and Empowerment Foundation and StandWithStan.
