Celebrating Pretoria’s most loved race, 10 years and beyond

Pretoria’s most loved road race, the Bestmed TuksRace, is back. After celebrating its ten-year anniversary on Saturday, 15 February 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic placed this prestigious annual road running event on hold. It’s now time to dust off your running shoes (if you haven’t already), warm up and start training for the 11th Bestmed TuksRace on Saturday, 18 February 2023 at the University of Pretoria Hillcrest Sports Campus.

Running enthusiasts of all experience levels are welcome to join this family event. Anyone may enter the 21.1km half-marathon, the 10km or 5km races, or the 1km fun run / walk. Though 2023’s Bestmed TuksRace does not include the 42.2km marathon, the 21.1km race incorporates the Athletics Gauteng North (AGN) Championships.
