Due to the Durban Top Gear Festival moving to the date allocated to the SPAR Women's 10/5km - Durban (Sunday, 22 June 2014) we are no longer able to make use of this date as there is a clash of facilities. Following discussions with all roleplayers the KZN Athletics Road Commission have confirmed a new date.
