Tomorrow approximately 2 000 enthusiastic runners and athletes will take to the streets for the annual RCS Gugs Reconciliation Race.

The race, which is hosted and sponsored by the Gugulethu Athletics Club, financial services provider, RCS and the Cape Times, has been held for the past 16 years on 
Reconciliation Day, December 16.

Gugulethu is one of the oldest townships in Cape Town and where many black people were forced to live when they were forcibly removed by the apartheid government.

Tomorrow’s race is important for the Cape Times, which this year celebrates its 
140th anniversary, as well as parent company, Independent Media.

This event underscores the company’s vision to bring together diverse readership communities and offer platforms where readers can communicate and share, as well as being informed and 
entertained.
