27 For Freedom Race.
To commemorate this event, the Drakenstein Correctional Services and the Cape Winelands District Municipality will host the annual 27 for Freedom Race day at the Drakenstein Correctional Facility just outside Paarl. For the fit runner, there is the scenic revised 27km run/walk or for fun the 10km run/walk or the Freedom Route (5km). The day promises to be a family fun day of sports, history and loads entertainment. This is where you will walk or run along the same route Nelson Mandela walked when being released from prison.
