The 947 Ride Joburg cycle race has proved a very popular spectator event over the more than two decades of its existence. It sees thousands of cyclists take to Johannesburg’s streets in its 25th edition. This year, there are a few exciting changes, including a slightly longer 97-kilometre route, which traverses the most awe-inspiring parts of the City of Gold.

Take advantage of a VIP spectator experience that ensures you miss none of the nail-biting cycling action – we cannot wait to welcome you!

As the excitement builds to Black Friday, Kyalami Corner is delighted to announce that a number of our retailers will also be exhibiting special offers as part of a sidewalk sale from 23 to 29 November. Drop by for amazing deals, or to check out must-have summer items!

This is a wonderful opportunity to grab those products you’ve been eyeing for a while, but have not been able to afford – they might just be on discount as a part of the sidewalk sale. You’ll find the goods on sale just outside the shops’ entrances. It has never been easier to grab great offers on the go!


Following the postponement of Kyalami Corner’s Run The Shops fun run due to bad weather, we are happy to announce that this event will now take place on 3 December.

Held in collaboration with well-known running and walking club Run/Walk For Life and in support of the Joburg-based non-profit organisation HospiceWits, the 5-kilometre run is family-friendly and made for runners and walkers of all ages and fitness abilities. Dogs run for free, and all finishers will receive a medal. All the proceeds generated from this event will be donated to HospiceWits.

If you have already bought a ticket for Run The Shops, your entry will remain valid for the event on 3 December. To purchase a ticket, please click here – the race starts at 18:00.
