Warming up for 31 December 2011 and the entire 2012

The Great Brak Grabadoo is an exciting family fun run, walk and ride taking place on 31 December 2011. Entries are open and the excitement is electric. People are not only getting into the festive spirit of the season, but also into the spirit of energy and exercise and fun just before the beginning of a brand new year. 

Studies have shown that a decent warm up regiment can reduce the chances of picking up a stubborn niggle or even worse, a really serious injury. If that is true for sport, then it is bound to be true in life (sports) as well, right? For the ninth year, the Great Brak Grabadoo is setting the perfect example by encouraging people to get moving and take part in an event to boost the endorphins and send the serotonin levels rising skywards and making you feel (like everyone deserves to feel) phenomenal. What an incredible way to step into a brand new year than to be filled to the brim with enthusiasm, motivation and a lust for life that is sure to set 2012 alight with possibility, much like the fireworks displays at the stroke of midnight.  

The event will consist of a run/walk (4.8km), mountain bike (15/35/new 70km) and road bike (20/40km) routes. If you are a walker or a runner, then get ready for 4.8km of tackies hitting tar around the beautiful Great Brak River. Road cyclists can get some needed road time in before the Argus by entering the 20km or 40km routes, whilst mountain bikers can look forward to 3 routes – a 15km, 35km and the brand new 70km route traversing Great Brak River byways with the most spectacular scenic moments.   

Entries are open! Participants can enter at Chas Everitt offices in Great Brak River, Sedgefield and George or online at www.onlines.co.za. The first 1200 entrants will receive a great summer goodie bag with among other things a summer surprise from 8ta. All entrants will receive a medal, a gift from Mitchum and Powerade. For more information, please feel free to contact Mimi Finestone on 084 583 3144 or email mimi@gojipr.net or visit www.gojipr.net to see the previous years’ festivities, check out the routes and where and when to enter in full colour. 

Warm up your passion for a brand new year and grab the life you have been waiting for someone to give you with your whole heart. Drink in the abundance of possibility and feel how the surge of positivity propels you into a year unlike any other.
