Mom, graphic designer and runner, Sarah Ayres is ready for SPAR race

EMMARENTIA – Sarah Ayres is the new Face of the Race winner for the SPAR Women’s Challenge and she is ready to run.

The 32-year-old Rangeview resident is a proud mother of two (aged three and six) and has been married for eight years.

“I have been running 4km and 5km and I know I will be able to do the 10km,” she said.

“This is because I know I have the energy to run 10km, I just need to have the time to do it.”

Ayres is a freelance graphics designer and between that and raising her children she keeps herself busy.

“I promote any exercise but especially running. I have no time to join a gym but if I have half an hour I can quickly put on my tekkies and go run.”

Ayers will run her first 10km at the Curro Krugersdorp Trail Run and the SPAR Women’s Challenge will be her second 10km.

“I am so excited and I would encourage women to give the SPAR run a go.”

The sixth event in this year’s SPAR Grand Prix will be held at Marks Park Sports Club, Emmarentia, on October 6.

How to enter

So get out your running shoes and log on to www.sparjoburgrace.co.za to enter online. Online entries close at midnight on September 24.

Otherwise visit your nearby SPAR, KWIKSPAR or SUPERSPAR to register in store. A full list of the stores where you can enter is available on the race website.

Late entries will be charged at R110 each and will be available at Marks Park Sports Club from October 2 to 5, between 10am and 4pm, and on October 6, between 6am and 7.30am if available.

Drop a pair

The Drop Off a Pair and Show You Care campaign is also in effect, and has been since Caxton Local Media noticed many children running the race barefoot in 2015.

Community members are encouraged to donate a pair of running shoes that are in good condition at Marks Park Sports Club or at one of the two Caxton branches in Joburg north.

These are at 368 Jan Smuts Avenue, Craighall, and 1187 Cornelius Street, near the corner of JG Strijdom Road, Weltevreden Park.
