Today is a public holiday in South Africa, yep, it is Heritage Day!

On this day we’re celebrating the vast cultural differences found in this country, making us the Rainbow Nation that we are. That said, it has also in the last few years, begun to be known as Braai Day. Where we also celebrate the arrival of Spring and warm weather.

This year, I entered the FNB Heritage Run. Yes, it’s a 10km run taking us past the many beautiful heritage sites around this amazing city we call home, Johannesburg.

Next a couple of pictures of the various sites we will run past:
