INTRODUCTION
CESA Relay gets bigger and better!
Consulting Engineers of South Africa, (CESA) the umbrella organization for consulting engineers in South Africa, with more than 500 member firms employing 22,000 professional and support staff, has for the past 30 years, staged the annual WalkCycleRun Relay – a fun sports day where staff from member firms compete against other member teams in fun events – cycling, running, walking, tug-of-war and volleyball.

The excitement and enthusiasm generated by this popular event has seen a steady increase in attendance with last year’s event attracting more than 400 teams. Close on 4,000 competitors, family and friends attended last year’s event, held in the pristine surroundings of the Eagle Waters Resort, on the shores of Hartbeespoort Dam.

The event is run on a non-profit basis with costs being covered by entry fees from participating firms and sponsorship opportunities offered to interested companies. A portion of the entry fee is allocated to a donation for a worthy cause or charity to assist the disadvantaged within our communities.

University Challenge

Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) encourages participation from all the Universities within Gauteng and if, as a member firm, you are providing an Engineering bursary to any of these Universities, we encourage you to enter these students into the Relay. They will participate in the University Entrant categories.

For those that are not bursars to Engineering students within these Universities, do not despair! We also have an "Adopt a University" programme. This will happen as and when Engineering faculties approach Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) for sponsorship to enter their teams into the Relay. Member firms will have to contact Patricia Fanti, at CESA via email: patriciaf@cesa.co.za to be part of a list where these University teams will be allocated to member firms on a first come first serve basis.
