JEFF Swag Prizes

Over R50,000 in prizes up for grabs

We run better when we’re together! Let’s get competitive and see how far you can run in one hour. There are some epic prizes to be won.

And while there’s nothing wrong with rewarding performance, we’ll have prizes for a few more categories:

  • The most creative running route posted on Strava,
  • The most ridiculous outfit posted to the JEFF Together Facebook page,
  • The best looking breakfast cooked after the run, as voted for by our community, and
  • If you can prove you saw any of the JEFF team on the road, there might just be a prize for you too.

Join us from anywhere for a good time and a great cause!

More about JAM SA

Since the start of the lockdown, JAM SA has continued distributing supplies of their fortified porridge to children from 3,000 early childhood development centres across the country, and has also expanded wherever possible to support those children’s families with essential food parcels — but they can’t make it without more financial help.
