The J&B MET

met1

Attracting an attendance of over 50 000 people, this race has become one of the gold-starred, red-circled, ear-marked events of Cape Town's social calendar - and this year the theme, Full Colour, encourages a full voltage experience.

Worst of all, “But DAD! He keeps LOOKING at me!” is considered a genuine and legitimate defense for sibling aggravation and, when asked to approach the bench, a strategic combination of puppy dog eyes and the by-now-familiar statement “I’m bored”, is used to wrench at your heartstrings.
