IT’S TOM JENKINS: YOU MUST EXPERIENCE IT!

The 2019 Tom Jenkins will see the introduction of a single lap 21.1 km route. However, the notorious climb up Meintjieskop remains. The 800m hill was constructed by the Italian Prisoners Of War (POW) during World War 2. The race ends with an easy down run/walk for both 10 km and 21.1 km participants.

Floating trophies for the largest, fastest and jolliest buses make this a race to show pride in your club and have fun!

Accept the Challenge!
