Official Vitality Racing Event (VRE)

Taking part in race events is a great way to stay motivated to exercise regularly – from a 5km fun run to an endurance event such as a cycle race or marathon. To celebrate all levels of event participation of our Vitality members, we have expanded our race event calendar to include any timed and verified race event in the disciplines of cycling, walking/running, swimming and major multisport events. This means you are able to compete both locally and in international events – and be rewarded for it.



Back To Basics Nutrition

The Back to Basics range includes two supplementary drinks, both are Low GI, enriched with fibre, vitamins and mineral fortified. They come in single-serve sachets, in a variety of flavours.

Back to Basics – Nutrition nutritional supplements are the result of 20 years research and offer the advantage of sustained energy release over a period of 4 to 5 hours vs traditional supplements that are sugar based [High GI] and provide energy for approximately one hour, followed by a feeling of exhaustion and hunger.

Route Profiles

No laps - Epic Scenery

21km(470hm) - Route Profile

The 21km route will take you via single track to the most western side of the Windy Brow farm where the 5km will split off and you will head for the awesome short gorge of almost 20m deep.

From there the runners will have to option to take the BULL RUN which will save you 300m but might or might not be faster than the normal route...that's up to you to find out. However, you will have 12km remaining to either catch up or take advantage of your gap.The 10km runners will split shortly thereafter.

Then you will be heading back to the most south eastern side of the farm where the 15km will split off on the 11km mark.

Make sure you spend some time on the breathtaking views over Cullinan mine before heading north for some more epic single track fun.

Once you turn back south you will be heading back where your trail will merge with the 15 & 10km route before you reach the finish line where some Ice Cold craft beer & Gin Ice Tea on Tap supplied by Legends Brewery will await!
