The Herald (South Africa) - - Club Sport - Mo­gan Se­ga­da­van

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.

● Clubs are ad­vised that 2019 li­cence forms are avail­able from the ASA web­site.

Forms from mem­bers must be col­lected as soon as pos­si­ble, as no li­cence can be is­sued un­less the form is signed.

Clubs will be no­ti­fied when the 2019 li­cences are ready for col­lec­tion. A sched­ule with times will be cir­cu­lated to clubs in­di­cat­ing when they can col­lect from the EPA of­fice.

To fa­cil­i­tate the col­lec­tion of the li­cences, clubs must make an ap­point­ment dur­ing the al­lo­cated times. Li­cences can be col­lected from Tues­days to Thurs­days.

Pay­ments can be made only by elec­tronic trans­fer – no cash pay­ments can be made. Pay­ment must be made be­fore col­lect­ing li­cences.

● The EPA of­fice will close at 1pm next Fri­day (De­cem­ber 14) and re­open on Jan­uary 8.

● The 1City Marathon and Re­lay run in Port El­iz­a­beth in Oc­to­ber will be shown on SABC2 on Sun­day on Ath­let­ics Alive.
