It’s important to clarify that the #Jumping4Petals initiative is entirely separate from the Spar Woman’s Race and that we have no affiliation with any specific company or organization.

#Jumping4Petals is purely taking part as virtual racers and make use of their goodie bags and the commitment to also donate a pack of Sanitary Pads for every entry.

Take note that 2023 will be the last year that #Jumping4petals initiative will be participating as a group entry  into Virtual Women’s Race. Starting from next year #Jumping4Petals 2024 is excited to “cross brand” and will include our own Race packs for participants. Yeah us! 🙂
