The Music Run 5km and music festival will hit Joburg for the first time in February next year. Johannesburg will be one of 15 cities across three continents to be introduced to The Music Run in 2017, when the event hits Riversand Farm Village on Saturday 4 February 2017.

The Music Run empowers participants to control the soundtrack of the run by voting for their favourite songs in the build-up to the event. Vote via a ‘Music Voting App’ to ensure that your favourite tracks make it to the official run playlist.

On event day, runners will experience the world’s loudest 5km running course, known as ‘The Sound Track’. More than 120 speakers pump out the most popular songs across five interactive and music themed zones – pop, rock, old school, hip hop and dance.

The run will end with the ultimate after-run music festival, which includes world class DJs, live bands, dancers, laser lights, LED screens, chill out zones, and plenty more.

Created by Fresh Events Global, The Music Run was first held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2014. The event has already been experienced by more than 100 000 participants across 12 events and 9 countries from Singapore to Hamburg. In 2016 The Music Run expands to the Middle East and Africa.
