DStv Halloween Night Run

Halloween just got real with DStv

We know what you did last summer… No not really. But we know what you’ll do this Halloween

The first ever DStv Halloween Night Run will be held at the PwC Bike Park in Sandton, at 19:00 on Monday, 31 October 2016. The race is limited to 300 people – and they will be running…for their lives… in this exclusive event.

The Night Run promises entrants a fully immersive experience, as on-screen horror is brought to life in a 2km run through the stuff nightmares are made of – through the woods, in the dark. A scenario that’s bound to help runners discover athletic abilities they never knew they had.

Nomsa Chabeli Mazibuko, General Manager for Marketing at MultiChoice says, “With Halloween just around the corner, we want to give our thrill-seeking customers the opportunity to take part in a real-life Halloween experience. The DStv Halloween Night Run will be memorable, haunting and guaranteed to scare your socks off.”
