Venue Description

Country life right on your doorstep.

Riversands Farm is a beautiful piece of land rich in history. It all started around the late 1940s  when being a free-range chicken farm, Granny Lemay started selling her eggs and chickens on the side of the William Nicol which was still a dirt road. She then opened the soon to be famous Riversands Farmstall which became a weekend country outing. People came in their droves to buy the delicious  chicken pies (still available in the current Village).

As Fourways expanded, people needed a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The animals disappeared and the New Riversands Farm Village took shape.

We are proud to bring to you a monthly night run at this venue.  The bar and coffee shop will be open before and after your race, so make sure to support the locals and treat yourself to something to eat and drink after your run/walk.  Bar and coffee shop is pet friendly for this monthly races as well, so make sure to bring your best friend along.
