There is something about the challenge of running to the top of World’s View in Pietermaritzburg, the capital city of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The Parklane SUPERSPAR Capital Climb is one of KwaZulu-Natal’s iconic and “must do” events on a par with other Maritzburg linked events such as the Comrades Marathon, Dusi Canoe Marathon and Amashova Cycle Classic.
“We are pleased to announce the conclusion of a 3-year title sponsorship deal with Parklane SUPERSPAR”, said Tony Morrison, Chairman of Midlands Athletic Club, adding that “the injection of sponsorship and more importantly the community-based support of Parklane SUPERSPAR will help grow the iconic KwaZulu-Natal event into future.”
Parklane SUPERSPAR will be joined by Spring Meadow Dairy Farm who hold the presenting rights to the event.
Lesley Seethal, Parklane SUPERSPAR store manager stressed that “Parklane SUPERSPAR has always played an integral part in the community with our ongoing support of local events such as the Midmar Mile, Music Revival Concert Series, The Wine Festival and The Garden Show to name but a few. It is great for Parklane SUPERSPAR extend its support to another event which is so integral to the greater Pietermaritzburg and KwaZulu-Natal Midlands community.”
The Capital Climb has been running since 1976 and a mixture of tarred roads and off-road dirt tracks through a plantation, with lots of challenging hills. The race is all about the long and brutal 6 km climb to World’s View but it is also incredibly scenic and the view from the top is worth all the hard work. From the crest, mercifully, the following two kilometres are fairly flat with a final steep downhill charge leading participants to the finish.
The Parklane SUPERSPAR Capital Climb powered by Spring Meadow Dairy Farm makes one major change in 2018 by moving to a Sunday. The race will take place on Sunday, September 2, 2018 starting and ending at Voortrekker School fields in Pietermaritzburg.
