The Growler - Johannesburg's Most Offensive Running Road Event

The Growler is a 23km road run. It has one page which acts as a website. The first words on it state: 

"No comments about the route, no marshals, no prizes, no timekeeping, no drinks tables, no t-shirts, no whining!"

It was described to me as a runner's descent into the Dante's Inferno of central Johannesburg where few survive and none forget. The first part is a slight exaggeration, the second is spot on.

Sometimes words are not required if you have enough pictures. Here goes....
