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!

Running Tip of the Month
Don't aim for a PB every time you run
To eventually run faster, you actually need to run slower too - regularly. Easy runs are a surprisingly effective way to build your fitness. And although it is tempting to drop the slower/easier runs from your training schedule, they are very important for healing and for being able to run more often, as well as for balancing out the faster and more intense sessions.
