More than just
a cycle race

The 947 Ride Joburg is more than just a cycle race – it’s a platform for people to accomplish something great.

Whether you want to achieve a personal goal; fundraise for a charity under Ride for a Purpose or help those who need a boost en route, this is an event that allows participants and supporters alike to reach out, support each other, and make themselves and the whole of Joburg proud.

Why not commit to tackle the challenging 97 km route for a cause that is greater than yourself. Since its inception in 2011, the 947 Ride Joburg Ride for a Purpose initiative has helped countless charities raise over R103 million enabling these organisations to continue the good work they do, touching lives across the nation.

Here’s how you can become a Ride for a Purpose Hero:

Register your Charity Team


A Charity Team is made up of 10 or more entries to help raise funds for the charity. Only registered charities may use the 947 Ride Joburg as a platform to raise funds and awareness for their cause.
