The DC Super Heroes are infiltrating the Health & Fitness and Lifestyle markets to get DC Fans in South Africa back out on the road exercising and keeping healthy. Mass participation Virtual Runs are launching around the country featuring the DC Super Heroes, both individually, and together, as The Justice League™.

Although keeping physically distanced, the participants will be a prominent sight that has never been seen before in the country.
