THE first Sunday in February, is dedicated to the Sydenham Sport Club’s 16km run/walk and 32km run race.
The Checkout Verulam Falcons Athletic Club runners and walkers participated in the event.

Yunus Doba was outstanding form by finishing as the leading male runner in the 16km with a time of 1:31. Sophie Ismail showed her resilience as the Falcons 16km leading female runner. Sophie returned from an injury, that made her miss most of the 2016 season, with an under six minute per kilometre run.

In the 16 km walkers category, Dan Moonsamy walked to the finish in a time of 2:24 to be the first Falcon walker. Bala Govender showed his stamina and strength as the leading Falconer over the longer distance 32km run.

However, the day belonged to the Checkout Verulam Falcons Veterans Amres Moodley, Ebrahim Asmal and KB Chain. The 70 and above gentlemen excelled and inspired others by completing the 16km route.

The route is considered as one of the difficult in the KZN race calendar.
