702 Walk The Talk

702 Walk The Talk

702 Walk The Talk: On Sunday, July 24, over 50 000 walkers will converge on Marks Park Sports Club in Judith Road, Emmarentia, the start and end point for this year’s 702 Walk the Talk. 702 Walk the Talk, Joburg’s biggest and best-loved walking event, is just around the corner and 702 will be pulling out all the stops to ensure the event runs smoothly. This will include implementing several road closures on the day. Three different walks with staggered starting times will take place on the day. To ensure the safety of all walkers, residents and motorists, a number of roads in and around Emmarentia will be closed to traffic on the day. Temporary road closures will be manned at points along the route. Visit www.walkthetalk.co.za for a comprehensive list of road closures, as well as a detailed route map, to avoid the road closures.

With the money raised last year, the event organisers built an outdoor gym at the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens, which attracts visitors from across Gauteng, as well as a new dance floor at Dansazania, a community dance centre in Melville. All queries relating to the 702 Walk the Talk and the associated road closures either before the event or on the day can be directed to the 702 Walk the Talk office call centre on 011 017 2700. The City of Joburg is hosting the 702 Walk the Talk, and is a proud partner of the event, which showcases the city’s ability to stage sporting events of this stature.
