The 5K route starts at the  sports ground within the Lawrence School, Lovedale campus. Runners will run past the Italian Gothic styled main school building, then exit the school, immediately re-enter it near the Lovedale Church  and head westward toward Grass Pitch and the school’s cross-country track. The terrain for this section of the run is trail and there are some elevation changes to watch out for. Finish the loop and make your way back to the school ground where breakfast and your finisher medal will await you!

    Lucky guys ! I used to run these routes back in 1952 – 1957. And we finished with two water jumps.

      Hello Kaniraj,
      This is a fun-run (not a race) and there are no cut-off times.
