The Marcel van’t Slot Ocean Basket Memorial Race nowadays also starts and finishes at Pretoria Boys High School. The route is new, but is still exciting and challenging. The scenic and historic section through Boys High is a treat for those who enjoy something new.
In 2013 The Boys High Representative Council for Learners Charities (RCL) organised a fun run, held in conjunction with the Marcel van’t Slot on the 17 August. All proceeds were destined for the RCL Charities (Salvokop Street Shelter, Bramley Children’s Home, S.A Guide Dogs, MAHAU Orphanage and Kingdom Life Children’s Home.)
The races are a 5km fun run, a 15km walk and 15km race. Spot prizes and time incentives add to the excitement with T-Shirts given to the first 1000 in the 15km run and the first 500 in the 5km fun run.
