Using the bulk entry option for the SPAR Women’s Challenge has become a favoured option for many schools and corporates who enjoy the fun nature of the Port Elizabeth race.
The 27th edition will take place on March 21 and consists of 10km and 5km races.
One of the easiest ways for large groups to enter is by creating a bulk entry.
“We have seen that companies or schools want to create their own teams for the races and it is a great way to celebrate the females in your staff or school,” said SPAR Eastern Cape promotions and events manager Alan Stapleton.
“Often it is much more fun to do events such as this in a large group, especially if you are not a regular runner, and it is a wonderful team-building opportunity.
“It also makes the logistics of the entry process simpler to manage because just one person handles the bulk entry and then fetches the information needed from registration.”
There are a number of incentives on offer for those who follow this entry route.
The high school with the most participants will receive a laptop while the primary school and company with the most entries will receive R2 500 each. The teacher who organises the most entries will pocket an incentive of R1 200.
In addition, the first 2 000 entries online will receive Women’s Challenge peaks.
To qualify for the bulk entry, companies and schools will have to put down a minimum of 10 entries, but they can add to that in the period before the event.
Anyone interested in making use of the bulk entry option should note that entries close on March 15.
