This year the 3rd French Corner Run/Walk is scheduled for 17 September and promises to be bigger and better than last year.
The 10km race will start at 7h00 followed by the 5km run/walk at 07:15. The 10km traverses the farms of Grande Provence, Mont Rochelle and La Couronne and staff from the farms all assist with the water tables and have a fun time. Kaap Agri and Franschhoek Cellars are also joining in the fun by assisting with a water table.
The French Corner Run has the cooperation of the Stellenbosch Municipality which includes traffic control, fire and police departments in the interest of everyone’s safety. It is very much an event put on by the locals. Marshals, officials and other helpers come forward from the community to assist. The Franschhoek Wine Valley Tourism – www.franschhoek.org.za – as well as the independent Franschhoek at your Fingertips Website – www.franschhoek.co.za- supports and advertises the event.
We would like to thank Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty for being the main sponsor for the event. We also thank local businesses that are contributing to the success of the event: Mont Rochelle, Kaap Agri, BP Garage, La Coronne, Grande Provence, Franschhoek Vrugtepakkers, Franschhoek Cellars, Or-Gari Golden Safari and many more to join.
