Health and wellness brands Run/Walk For Life and eatForLife will be running their annual FitSlim Challenge from 1 September 2019.
Over the past 36 years, Run/Walk For Life has become a highly respected fitness brand within the South African community and running fraternity. For the past couple of years, Run/Walk For Life’s annual FitSlim Challenge, which combines weight loss and fitness, has seen people across the country take up the opportunity to improve their health. In the process, they also stand a chance to win a variety of prizes.
According to Run/Walk For Life CEO, Matthew Grosset, the popularity of the FitSlim Challenge lies in the fact that it is one of few of this nature that combines fitness and weight loss.
“Run/Walk For Life is known for being an all-inclusive fitness experience that allows people from all levels of fitness to improve their overall health,” says Grosset.
The 2019 FitSlim Challenge gives participants the option to enter either as an individual or as a team consisting of four people.
