Seaside fun run with a purpose

Cape Town, South Africa

Experience hosted by Adele

60 mins
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will be doing a walk/run 5k along the Sea Point Promenade, one of Cape Town's most beautiful views along the Atlantic Seaboard. We will start with a dynamic warm up to get our muscles ready, just like we do in our ActivateHer sports classes, and then hit the route. We will go past the Mouille Point Lighthouse, the Sea Point pool and the many sculptures along the way, looping back by way of Green Point Park and Green Point Stadium. Be prepared for fun exercise, breathtaking views, and good company, all while getting in a great workout.
Other things to note
Please wear exercise gear and gym shoes. The temperature in Sea Point can often be slightly cooler than town, as it catches a sea breeze, so it's always a good idea to have a light jacket just in case

I'm the founder of ActivateHer, and love being able to be outdoors, active and exploring around the Mother City. I'm a retired college athlete who now runs sports development programmes for girls in Khayelithsa, the largest township in Cape Town. On the weekends you'll find me hiking through the forest or up the mountains, relaxing at the beach, or in a local yoga session. I'm excited to share the active Cape Town lifestyle with like-minded individuals while also sharing with you more about what ActivateHer does to empower local girls through sporting opportunities.

Where you'll be

While we will be on the move along the Sea Point Promenade, which runs along the Atlantic Seaboard, we will have views of Robben Island, Lions Head and Table Mountain. We will also end our run through Green Point Park and Green Point Stadium. We will be sure to fit in photo-ops whenever you see fit! The Sea Point Promenade and surrounds is where I fell back in love with running, and since then I've run multiple races along this route.

We had a wonderful time with Adele and she was able to tell us a lot about South Africa and her reason for running - proceeds go to a charity programme to get young girls moving. We highly recommend going for a run with her along the seashore of Cape Town!

Adele is a spectacular host and I cannot thank her for this simple but profound experience!! After coming off a 30 hour flight to Cape Town, I didn’t think a 5k run was the ideal thing next morning but boy was I wrong! I am so glad I did it, not only did we run on the beautiful promenade but we engaged in some really thoughtful discussion and Adele also gave insight into a few things about Cape Town I wouldn’t have always known. Take this! You will not regret it and I found myself running every morning afterwards as well!!!

Ich hatte einen tollen Lauf mit Adele! Die Laufstrecke ist super und ich habe diese Aktivität ausgewählt um etwas Gutes zu tun! Ich habe mich super mit Adele verstanden und mich jederzeit sicher gefühlt. Sie hat viel über ihre Arbeit und ihr Leben in Kapstadt erzählt und ich freue mich dass ich einen einen kleinen Beitrag zu ihrer tollen Organisation beitragen konnte! Absolute Empfehlung!
