Irene 10km Open Race Walking Grand Prix
A resounding success.
We had a fantastic and enthusiastic turnout on a cool and chilly morning although the chill
did not affect the enthusiasm of the helpers and the anticipation was electric. The masters
started at eight o’clock and turned out a new RSA Record for Kevin Philips (CGA) in the first
event on our new course! Unfortunately not an IAC or at least an AGN athlete but I promise
we are hard at work on that!!!
The individual and personal competition was intense and athletes chased each other with gusto but in all, good sportsmanship and camaraderie prevailed on the day.
The spirit of the day was impressive and long after the last bell tolled, debriefs and good
hearted banter were heard. The organiser had to chase the walkers and spectators home.......!
The day was a resounding success.
Apart from the traffic congestion that latecomers experienced, it was an excellent race.
We have received compliments from all over the country. We had 17% more finishers on both the distances and for the first time we had more finisher than Om die Dam, a great achievement indeed!
Thank you to each and every member who was involved with the race, you were the best! You really made us proud and boosted the club’s image tremendously. We received numerous compliments about the friendliness of our helpers on the day.
Without you it couldn’t happen. We salute you for your time and effort and for a job well done!
