Zoo Lake, Johannesburg
The route is a 5km circuit. We keep it short enough for non-runners, but long enough for seasoned runners to break a sweat.
If the run is not fully subscribed, then yes, we will be taking entries on the day. However, entries are limited so we suggest you don’t delay and enter right away.
The Daredevil Run is a special event for our boys and men only. However, we value all the women in our Daredevils’ lives and invite them to join us on the day as supporters. The more the merrier!
We know, we know…it takes courage to strip off and run in public in a Speedo – but that’s the whole idea. So, as a Daredevil you’ll need to wear the purple Speedo you’re given with your entry. Don’t worry if you don’t look like Mr South Africa – we have men and boys of all ages, shapes and sizes participating. Whether you’re a serious triathlete or haven’t seen your abs in years, join the army of Daredevil runners and help run cancer outta town!
The entry fee is a donation of at least R100 (but we are hoping you’ll contribute more to the cause). Speedo’s cost R50. Finally, there is a small admin fee of R10 which covers ticketing and banking fees. ENTRY FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE because we don’t want you to chicken out at the last minute. And your cash is going to a really good cause.
100% of the entry fees are divided between CANSA (80%) and the Prostate Cancer Foundation (20%)
80% of the donations go to CANSA funding our Hollard ManVan which travels around the country to rural areas offering free PSA screening, health checks and information about prostate and testicular cancer. 20% of donations are given to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and is used for cancer awareness and research programmes.

A blood test and physical exam are the most accurate way to test for prostate cancer.
If you’re a male who’s over 40, you should be screened for prostate cancer once a year. The good news is that if you participate in the Daredevil Run and you are over 40 we’ll screen you for free.
