The organisers of the Boxer Super Run are thrilled to reveal an unprecedented R142K prize purse for the inaugural event that is set to create a stir within Durban’s running community on Sunday, 15 October 2023.


“We are excited to present a prize purse of R142K for the Elite Race at the first-ever Boxer Super Run,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports. “A prize pool of this magnitude sets a new standard for 5km events, showcasing that the Boxer Super Run is far from the ordinary. Prize money will be allocated to the Top 8 male and female finishers in the Open Category, with the winners each taking home a well-deserved R20K. The Top 3 male and female finishers in the following age groups will also be rewarded for their efforts: Junior, 40-49,50-59, 60-69 and 70+.”


“The 5km distance requires a blend of speed, endurance, and strategy, making it a compelling challenge for elites looking to showcase their athletic prowess,” continues Meyer. “When you couple this with an unparalleled prize purse that’s truly worth contending for, you can look forward to witnessing a road running showdown that demands attention and is guaranteed to be a spectator highlight. We can’t wait to see the best of the best in action at the Boxer Super Run.”
