It’s just days to go before the SPAR Women’s Challenge Joburg at Marks Park in Emmarentia on Sunday October 6.

The Joburg Challenge is always a fun family day, with a KidZone, where the youngsters will be cared for and entertained while Mom pounds the streets. Bouncing castles and face painting are just part of the fun provided for the little ones.

For the adults, entertainment comes from the fresh and exciting band, Rubber Duc. These four young men – lead vocalist Nick Jordaan and his partners Brendan Campbell, Sheldon Sham and Amiel Gopal – have made quite a name for themselves with their innovative blend of folk/swing/hop. They call themselves South Africa’s premier Acoustic Dance Music (ADM) Act and they are sure to get runners and walkers bopping and hopping with numbers like “Stay With Me,” “Ain’t nobody got time for that” and “Through the Night.”

Their sound is mellow and finger-clicking good, so that is another good reason to stick around after the you have finished your race – not only will you be available to collect your prize if your number comes up, but you will be listening to one of the hottest bands in South Africa right now!
