Johannesburg, South Africa - Great news for fans of the trendy pop group Denim. After a four year wait, their new album “Crazy Love” is finally here … and even better news is that Denim will be performing live at the SPAR Women’s 10km Challenge at Old Parktonians in Randburg on Sunday October 9.

The guys from Denim, widely regarded as one of South Africa’s top live acts, believe this album is their very best, and that the four year wait has been worthwhile. “We love what we do, and we wanted to be sure we didn’t rush our inspiration and the direction of the album,” they explained on their blog. “We have taken our time and have chosen the best 24 tracks (20 originals and four covers) to give our fans a journey through our growth and experiences in the past four years.”
The album covers a wide range from cutting edge pop/dance tracks, a bit of hip-hop and R & B, and some old school remixes – and you will experience many of these numbers if you take part in the SPAR Challenge. When asked what they were looking forward to on race day, the band commented; “We as DENIM are very excited and honoured to be a part of this prestigious and amazing event.. We look forward to adding our magic touch to what will already be an amazing experience and we promise all the athletes and supporters a great and electrifying performance. We look forward to performing material from our brand new album exclusively. Come have fun with us DENIM style SPAR style.”
Denim is a group that offers something for everyone, and that is what Race Day will be like as well. There is a kiddie’s corner, where kiddies will be entertained. There is plenty of entertainment for the small fry, with clowns, jumping castles, face painting and games. And for those who simply can’t bear the thought of missing out on the Rugby World Cup, the good news is that the Old Parktonians Sports Club will be showing the quarter finals that will be played that day – which may feature South Africa.
For those who think they might be a little ‘peckish’ after their time on the road, there will be plenty of food stalls selling a variety of foods and drinks. So there is every reason to take part in the SPAR Challenge on October 9. For those who don’t want to tackle 10kms, there is also a 5km Fun Run, and walkers are very welcome to take part in both races.
There’s not long to go before the race, so enter now. Online entries have been extended until the 29th September so visit www.spar.co.za today! Entries will also be available on race day between 06h00 and 07h45.
