Organizer tip


Organizers are free to edit events after they have been added to the Conal website.

However, certain fields of events, such as date and name, cannot be changed by organizers after events are added.

If, for some reason, these fields need to be changed, please email and Conal admin will review the request and make the change for you if the changes pass review.

Organizer tips: Why Bold your event?

It’s great value for money!


The Conal Bold event service allows your event to appear in Bold on all pages of the Conal website, and in Conal Monthly, from the time your payment is confirmed until the date of your event, even if your event takes place a year or more after you pay.

The service costs 55 USD; and allows your event to be highlighted in many different places for a long period of time.

Order your Bold event service on your Conal organizer dashboard.

Conal at the Two Oceans



Conal runs a sponsorship programme, and one of our staff members, Serole Hlongwane, participated in the Two Oceans Half Marathon on 24th April.

The Two Oceans describes itself as the “world’s most beautiful marathon” but Serole did not stop to enjoy the views! He ran an excellent race, finishing with a time of 1hour 51. Well done Serole!
