The inaugural event of the French Corner Run, in aid of ACVV Franschhoek, is scheduled for Saturday, 16 September 2017.
There will be a 5km and 10km run/walk starting at 07h45. The event has the cooperation of Boland Athletics, the Stellenbosch Municipality which includes the traffic, fire and police departments. The Franschhoek Wine Valley Tourism also supports and endorses the event. It is envisaged to build this event into another exciting Franschhoek Festival.
The 10km route starts and finishes at the Huguenot Monument from where it meanders through the village with a loop through Groendal, then traverses the vineyards of Grande Provence, Dassenberg, Mont Rochelle and La Couronne. There is a challenging climb on Mont Rochelle and then respite for the runners with a lovely downhill run to the finish.
This is a wonderful event for team building, family fun and training and of course helping ACVV Franschhoek to improve the services that we render in our community.
The ACVV Franschhoek is a non-profit organization which has been committed to the promotion of and support for the quality of life of children, families and communities. Child welfare and protection is very important to us. The association’s services, resources and knowledge are available to all South Africans, irrespective of race, language, culture, religion or gender.
