HSP – A Passion for PerfectionWith a passion for meticulously organized sporting events, uncompromising safety criteria and a set of best practices that are benchmarked regularly against international standards, Harford Sports Promotions (HSP) manages a comprehensive list of some of the biggest sporting events in South Africa.
Given the current state of COVID-19 in our country and in line with the South African government’s risk adjusted strategy, it is with regret that HSP confirms the cancellation of the Discovery 947 Rhythm Run and 702 Walk the Talk for 2020.
A statement on Ride Joburg will be issued by the end of May 2020.
Furthermore, and in light of the COVID-19 ramifications and lockdown levels which will see mass gatherings, sporting and music events only being considered after level 1 lockdown is lifted, HSP has made the extremely difficult decision to cease trading at this time. With no events taking place this year and potentially well into 2021, and no foreseeable income possible, HSP has sadly been forced to retrench the respected and valued team. This has been a heart-breaking affair, as you may well know most of the team have been with HSP for over 10 years and are like extended family members.
Tanjent (Pty) Ltd, the owners of Ride Joburg, will continue to look into event opportunities and the team will be able to consult and project manage as and when their schedules permit.
From each and every one of us at HSP, we’d like to send a heartfelt THANK YOU for your partnership, service and unparalleled support over the years. We could not have produced the world-class events that with did without you and your teams.
We trust that the world as we know it will reach its ‘new normal’ sooner rather than later, and should the opportunity present itself, we look forward to working with you again.
