If you weren't watching the South African Music Awards (Samas) on Saturday night and you were in Joburg, then you probably saw some folks walking around with bright orange tops. That's because they had taken part in the second Discovery 947 Rhythm Run.

Over 8,000 people took part in the race at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, where they either put their fitness to the test or had a jol (and jog) with their pals.

Runners were given bright tops as part of their entry and Kyalami was transformed into a sea of orange on the night.

Runners had the option of doing a single lap of 4,7km or a double loop. You know, fitness levels. Of course, what's a run without an after-party? Runners gathered to the sounds of DJ Kent, Chrizz Beats and DJ Dino Bravo after they finished the route.

This year a 9km speedlap was introduced. You know, for those guys who can go bliksem fast. Donald Mashamaite took the men's race in a time of 26:54 while Caroline Poonan took the women's first prize in a time of 34:38. 

Come 2019, best you make an appearance. It's always a vibe.
