Stor-Age Proudly Sponsors 40th Pirates 10K Event
On Sunday 05 August, Pirates Running Club will host the 40th annual Stor-Age Pirates 10K race. A popular race on the running calendar, the route explores the leafy and historic suburbs of Westcliff and Parkview in Johannesburg.
Each year the area is abuzz with runners and their families as they take to the tarmac and join in the festivities, and this year will be no different. During the race, which starts and ends at Pirates Running Club in Greenside, runners will race past the 100-year-old Parkview Golf course which adds character to the incredibly scenic course.
Participants have the choice of entering either the 10km run or the 10km walk, the latter of which constitutes as an official CGA Walking league event.
Stor-Age is a proud title sponsor of not only this race, but the Pirates Club as a whole. Not only are we sponsoring the event and making sure runners are well-hydrated at both of our water stations, but we will be offering each and every runner one month of free self storage with their entry.
Entries that are submitted online will be able to collect their race numbers from their pre-selected Stor-Age store on either Thursday the 2nd or Friday the 3rd of August. Our stores are conveniently located to allow runners to collect their race numbers before the weekend as to avoid the last minute rush of collecting their race numbers from Pirates Club on the day.
With only 3,000 entries available, it is important to secure your entry soonest in order to avoid disappointment. Please see here for more information on entering the race.

We look forward to the festivity and endurance that has been shown every year at the race, expecting that this year will be even bigger and better than before.
