Greenwood Bay College will host its annual Rocks to Robberg Race and Beach Clean on Saturday 9th of November 2019, with this year’s proceeds benefiting Plett’s famous ORCA Foundation and Natures Valley Trust.
Date: Saturday 9 November 2019
Place: Robberg 1 Beach (next to BI)
Entry: R60 (adults) / R40 (children u13)
Races: 8,6km, 4.2km, Littlies Races & Beach Clean
The Rocks to Robberg races can be run or walked, and winners of each division stand a chance to get amazing prizes sponsored by local businesses, while a lucky draw will ensure that anyone in possession of a ticket may take home some loot, too.
If you are not a runner or walker, be part of the solution by joining GBC and NVT in cleaning this spectacular stretch of beach, which includes the Blue Flag-status Robberg 5, with free entry applying to beach cleaners.
An entry fee of R60 for adults and R40 for kids running or walking the 8,4km, 4.5km, or littlies races will further the respective causes of two established and particularly productive local organisations.
An overview of the beneficiaries
The ORCA (Ocean Research Conservation Africa) Foundation is part of a volunteer community dedicated to marine conservation throughout South Africa.
Like many conservation projects, it depends on the willingness of others to contribute their time and efforts to furthering the volunteer and conservation ethics that go hand in hand to ensure a better future for generations to come.
A major role-player in conducting ecological research in the region, Nature s Valley Trust was established in December 2000 to pro-actively maintain the environmental integrity of Natures Valley and the surrounding area.
Today, the Trust is one of the biggest environmental education initiatives in the Western and Eastern Cape provinces and involves local communities to create sustainable conservation.
So those are two particularly good reasons to diarise November 9th and rock up at Robberg 1 (BI Rocks) for registration at 8:30 am to sign up for any of the run/walk routes or beach clean. Stalls, fab prizes, food, music and a whole lot of fun awaits!
