Tough enough for 2015 Medihelp Monster?

MedihelpMonster2015  posterAre you tough enough for this year’s Medihelp Sunrise Monster in aid of CANSA Active to help raise awareness of cancer?

The 38th annual Medihelp Sunrise Monster will take place on Saturday, 7 March 2015 at Harlequins Club in Totius Road, Groenkloof, Pretoria and promises to pose a real challenge to serious athletes preparing for the Comrades, and real fun for fitness fanatics and their families.

What the Sunrise Monster offers

The 32 km event is one of the best conditioning races for the Comrades Marathon, while the 10 km Mini Monster and the 5 km Baby Monster fun run offer a less rigorous challenge to those who might not be quite tough enough for the main race.   But the Medihelp Sunrise Monster also caters for newcomers to the running scene who simply want to have some fun in the sun with friends and family.

Medihelp’s Principal Officer, Heyn van Rooyen, says the Medihelp Sunrise Monster is the perfect opportunity for all to stay fit and healthy.  “Since Medihelp firmly believes in the importance of preventive measures and following a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risk of diseases, the 2015 Medihelp Sunrise Monster is the ideal opportunity to get your heart racing.”  Read more about living a balanced lifestyle to reduce your cancer risk.

Dressing up in green is a long-standing tradition at the Sunrise Monster, and this year will be no different. Participants who are spotted on race day wearing something green could win one of two lucky-draw prizes – R1 000 for an individual and R2 500 for a family!  Van Rooyen says the creativity of participants who dress up in green is expected to reach new heights at this year’s event.  To enter or read more about the Medihelp Sunrise Monster, visit Medihelp’s events page.
