Talk of the Town - - Grahamstown - ... run­ners with pride

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Lungi Son­gongo on be­ing se­lected to run for Eastern Prov­ince in the 200m and 400m at the SA Cham­pi­onships. Good luck and train hard.

Some of our run­ners went to run the Kirk­wood 21km last Satur­day. It was a very flat fast scenic route. It started at the school and went out of town through the or­chards. One to look at for next year.

Lyn Har­brecht ran two hours six min­utes, Lyn West 2:26, Ma­ri­etjie Robb 2:35.

Carol and Jean Nep­gen ran the Pink Flow­ers 12-hour cir­cuit race in Melk­bosstrand. Con­di­tions un­der­foot were very rough and un­pleas­ant. Jean com­pleted 29km and Carol 48km.

The fol­low­ing day they com­pleted in the Chap­pies 21km Chal­lenge where Jean did the 10km in one hour 58 min­utes and Carol the 21km in three hours.

Let’s hope you give your legs a bit of a rest over De­cem­ber.

Sun­day the Novem­ber 12 is the club break­fast run or­gan­ised by Alex and Pauline. Please let us know for cater­ing pur­poses whether you will be there.
