The East Coast Radio Durban Big Walk is KwaZulu-Natal’s largest mass participation event, and along with several other events that we manage, the No 1 priority for the Treble Group is to ensure minimal exposure of COVID-19 to every South African by postponing until further notice.
East Coast Radio’s Managing Director, Boni Mchunu spoke of the postponement as a pivotal decision to ensure safe practices for the greater KZN.
“The well-being of our people and our communities is paramount, and if we limit exposure, we are minimising the spread of the virus across the country. Therefore we have postponed the East Coast Radio Durban Big Walk until further notice,” said Mchunu.
The Big Walk is one of the most anticipated walking events on the KZN calendar, where 30 000 participants across the province come together to walk along the most beautiful promenade in South Africa.
East Coast Radio’s Marketing Manager, Tanya Davis said that East Coast Radio would be monitoring the situation, and a dedicated team is deployed at the station to ensure effective communication and steps are taken regarding this pandemic and its effects.
“The most important thing right now is the health and safety of South Africans and our Big Walkers. Postponing the event is heart-breaking, but we look forward to hosting everyone later this year for our 20th Big Walk anniversary.
I am so excited to reveal all the new and exciting elements for our walkers at this year’s event.”
