Make the GBS Moun­tain Drive 21K your fam­ily break­fast run this Satur­day!

Grocott's Mail - - GBS MUTUAL BANK MOUNTAIN DRIVE HALF MARATHON -

This Satur­day will be per­fect weather for ath­letes and a fun fam­ily day out­doors in Gra­ham­stown (Makhanda). Hun­dreds of run­ners will set off from the Graeme Col­lege start/ fin­ish of the GBS Mu­tual Bank Moun­tain Drive Half Marathon at 8am – and you’re in­vited to join the ac­tion!

From 7am, as race en­trants ar­rive with their fam­i­lies and sup­port­ers, Ro­tary Gra­ham­stown will be serv­ing de­li­cious break­fasts, with Mugg & Bean at hand to sup­ply the per­fect cup of cof­fee.

While the run­ners make their way over the moun­tain in what are pre­dicted to be com­fort­able 17C sunny con­di­tions, things will be warm­ing up at the Graemian Cen­tre and the school’s Som­er­set Field will see its own ac­tion. Fun for kids and adults in­cludes a jump­ing cas­tle and games, stalls and other en­ter­tain­ment or­gan­ised by Round Ta­ble.

A de­li­cious day-long menu starts with cooked break­fasts and cof­fee, with hot drinks and muffins all morn­ing fol­lowed by lunch. Al fresco eat­ing at the pop-up cafe makes for a so­cia­ble day out­doors while you keep an eye on the race ac­tion.

Keep your ears open for the fan­tas­tic spot prizes on of­fer.

The first run­ners are ex­pected in a lit­tle af­ter 9am (last year’s win­ner on a vari­a­tion of this year’s course came home in 1.07.10) and all should be home and dry at the fin­ish by mid­day, when the of­fi­cial prize­giv­ing be­gins.

The GBS Mu­tual Bank Moun­tain Drive Half Marathon takes place this year in Gra­ham­stown (Makhanda), on 25 Au­gust.

In an all-gra­ham­stown col­lab­o­ra­tion, GBS Mu­tual Bank is the ti­tle spon­sor for the race, which is hosted by the Ro­tary Club of Gra­ham­stown Sun­set, and or­gan­ised by the Al­bany Saints & Sin­ners Mul­tisport Club. Photo: Avid Hills/ Cre­ative Com­mons
