UWC Fast and Flat 2017

Fast or Flat? UWC’s 22nd on-campus race preps runners for comrades marathon

Are you ready for the University of the Western Cape’s annual Fast and Flat road race on Saturday 3 June 2017?

Well, lace up those running shoes, do your warm ups and join thousands of runners ready to achieve their personal best times at UWC’s quick and flat course.


The race - which actually involves a 10km road race, a 10km fun run and a 5km fun walk - has become one of the most popular events on the Western Province Athletic calendar. This year’s 22nd anniversary race is dedicated to its founder, beloved former UWC Athletics coach Roger Adams, who passed away last year.

The Fast and Flat received a huge leg up when BestMed Medical Scheme came on as an official sponsor over a three-year period - a much-needed financial boost which will also involve funding a bursary for one or more students.

FIEKA sport has also sponsored race entry fees for 200 learners from Bellville High School.
