Magnetic Storm takes part in the most beautiful race 

Magnetic Storm is delighted to have been a part of South Africa’s most beautiful road Race, and the largest all female road running race this weekend: the SPAR Women’s Challenge 2018. 

For over a decade, Magnetic Storm has partnered with SPAR as its preferred event supplier, to ensure it hosts an event that celebrates women and raises money for charity. As the technical service provider, Magnetic Storm ensures a solid technical solution, consistent power throughout the event and builds the infrastructure to support this event, along with selected branding. 

“Over the years the brief has grown along with the event, with more than 10,000 people enjoying the race, prize giving and local and national entertainment,” remarks Simon Johnson, client service coordinator at Magnetic Storm. “We look for opportunities to add value wherever possible and enjoy the solid partnership we have built with SPAR.”
