Are you radiant, racy and ready to run? SPAR and Get It are searching for the 2019 Face of the SPAR Women’s Challenge.

We’re looking for someone who’s an enthusiastic runner … who’s keen to enter the race in October … and who wants to be queen for the day (don’t we all?).  Our winner will not only be featured in the local Get It magazine (who knows … you might just make cover girl) but will also receive VIP treatment on the day of the race. Think free entrance and  VIP parking for you and a partner, a special VIP table in the official marquee and (get this … our favourite bit) an assistant for the day! She’ll escort you through the crowds, keep you supplied with snacks, coffee or energy drinks, get you to the front at the start and be there at the finish with a cool towel and drink. She’ll take photos for your (and our) social media accounts and attend to your every whim. Star treatment for the day. Love it!

Look what’s up for grabs

The winner will be styled by a Get It stylist and will receive a photo shoot by a professional photographer, with hair and make-up done by a professional team. She’ll appear in the local Get It magazine and Caxton Local Newspaper. She’ll win a VIP package, with free race entry for herself and a partner or friend at the SPAR Women’s Challenge in October. This includes parking, an assistant for the day and a table in the VIP marquee.

She will also win

  • A R5000 SPAR shopping voucher
  • A pair of running shoes by Asics
  • SPAR Women’s Challenge T-shirts to wear in the race for her and her partner
  • A Get It tog bag, with a race towel, SPAR toiletries and a selection of cosmetics.

This year, we’ll also have four runners-up who will each get VIP tickets to the race for her and her partner, a goody bag, a pair of running shoes by Asics, VIP parking and a SPAR voucher worth R1000 each. These lucky women will also be part of a fabulous photo shoot with make-up done by Gosh.

How to enter

Simply email two photos of yourself – one head and shoulders, one full length – to [email protected]. Include your name, age, the area in which you live and a 100-word motivational letter about why you deserve to be our Face of SPAR Women’s Challenge 2019. Entries close August 1.


The winner and four runners-up will have to participate in the SPAR Women’s Challenge at the Marks Park Sports Club in Joburg on Sunday, October 6 and must complete the 5km race, although they’re welcome to enter the 10km race if preferred. They must be available to attend a media launch on August 22 in Fourways and be prepared to be photographed by Get It, and featured in print and online in Get It and Caxton publications. They must also be available for a photo shoot at Get It magazine at a time that suits both parties.
