Polokwane Mayoral Cycle Race a highlight

218

Professional and amateur cycling enthusiasts can look forward to Polokwane Municipality’s fourth annual Mayoral Cycle Race that is scheduled to start at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium at 07:00 on 28 May. Distances covered will be 15 km, 45 km and 96 km and the race is a category A event that places it in the same class as the Cape Argus.
The proceeds of the event will go towards the Executive Mayor’s bursary fund and donations to NGOs. The municipality raised R200 000 last year from registration fees of 2 000 entrants and aims to push it up to 2 500 this year,” acting Municipal Manager Ndavhe Ramakuela earlier said.
On-line registrations for the race are already open and can be done on www.polokwanecyclerace.co.za.
