Race is on to find 10km champ
It will be interesting to see if a new champion is crowned at the Baywest Mall 10km run on Saturday. So far, no runner has successfully defended the title.
The race, organised by Charlo Athletic Club, was won by Adriaan Gerwel (Ikhamva) and Adri Wessels (St Albans) last year.
The 10km will start at 6.30am and the 5km at 6.45am.
Late entries and registration will take place on Friday from 5pm-7pm at Baywest Mall (upper ground entrance 4) and on Saturday morning from 5am (lower ground entrance 4).
The entry fee is R50 for the 10km and R30 for the 5km fun run. A temporary licence fee of R30 applies only to the 10km. EPA-registered athletes over 65 will pay R30 for the 10km race.
