Superfans’ July What’s on: things to do

It’s Month Four of our national lock down and Tendai, Leonie and I are going stir crazy in Cape Town and Harare. Luckily, we’ve got a few things to do (all virtually, of course) to keep our geek minds from turning to mush:

Justice League Run Series: Superman Race

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, that’s us three geeks racing off in our Man of Steel t-shirts from our front doors as we join 20 000 other runners-from-home in the Justice League Series Superman virtual race on Sunday 19 July 2020.

Brought to us by the organisers of the epic Colour Run, this geektastic event will see all runners complete a 2.5km, 5km or 10km run from their front doors, in their living rooms or wherever takes their fancy, engage with each other and the organisers on social media and share their at-home finish line photos.

The Superman race is one of five , all in honour of a DC superhero and culminates with The Flash run in November. Enter here.

The Umbrella Academy Season 2

Netflix is bringing our favourite weird family back for Season 2 on 31 July 2020 and we are TOTALLY excited!

The Umbrella Academy’s second season sees our 7 favourite siblings stuck in the 1960s and causing all kinds of havoc … Klaus even starts a cult πŸ˜‰

Check out the trailer below:

Comic Con Africa’s Quiz Nights:

Every Thursday evening, Comic Con Africa will host an online pop quiz about a series, movie,comic book character etc via YouTube and an app.

I had a magical blast at the Harry Potter Quiz (even I came in way below the expected top 10 – Hermoine is getting cold shivers as we speak!) and I look forward to another where I can show off my geek knowledge.

The Power Rangers Quiz will be held on Thursday 16 July at 7pm. Don’t miss it!

More of a Netflix and Chill lock down lover? We’ve got you covered on what to watch this weekend.
