Johannesburg – TV personality Lalla Hirayama will be taking on one of her greatest challenges as she runs the 21km half-marathon at the Old Mutual Soweto Marathon on Sunday 6 November. 

The star was inspired to take up running by Coach Peteni and the members of Nike+ Run Club (NRC) Joburg. 

Speaking on why she decided to take on this particular marathon, Lalla says, “I’ve always loved to run, and after going through some recent health issues and weight gain I decided the 21km run would be the perfect way to reach my new goals and get my body back into shape.”


With this being her first ever race, the presenter is excited and ready to go. “I’m really looking forward to experiencing it all; watching human beings pushing themselves past their comfort zones and expectations is truly inspirational.”
