THE Checkout Verulam Falcons AC’s development League-Hypersave Series’ 23rd Leg took place on Sunday, 23 July.

Athletes started from the Verulam Day and Frail Care Centre and joined the R102 towards Tongaat and turned back at the appropriate distances’ halfway points. The considerable number of Falcons on the road gave the club the dominance over other local clubs’ athletes.

Junior Zaakir Adam ran the 15km in 01:15, whilst Iggy Nehore walked 15km in 01:50.
Seventy-six-year-old KB Chain displayed age is just a number and led the 10km run 01:12.
Newcomer and Everest Heights resident Chris Peters lead the 10km walk 01:30.

This week the league had five junior athletes over the 5km, 10km and 15km. Falcons said in a statement: “It was heartening to see youngsters’ enthusiasm. Falcons AC supports the youth and family participation in its activities. Therefore, the club has planned a family day on August 9 for its members and their families as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations.”
