It is highly recommended that you partake in events prior to the 947 Ride Joburg that are over 90km and are timed by a Racetec. A Racetec is used for timing. One will automatically be allocated to you upon online registration if you do not have one.

At the core of our work is a commitment to independence, neutrality and impartiality. These ideals have driven every aspect of what we do since MSF was established in 1971. Through this event, you can continue to help us maintain our independence from political, economic and religious powers to ensure the decisions we make are based solely on medical needs.
