SOME 800 runners and walkers kicked off the new year in running style at the annual Woodlands Dairy Race on January 2.

The race, the first event on the Eastern Province Athletics Calendar, kicked off with a 15km league race for the more experienced runners, followed by a 5km trail run and a 600m mini moo dash for the little ones younger than nine.

According to Tinus Pretorius, Woodlands Dairy Sales General Manager, this is the perfect way for any athlete to start the new year. “While getting to spend time in the beautiful town of Jeffreys Bay, they also have the opportunity to earn league points.

“Every year athletes from across South Africa make the town their holiday destination and participate in the Woodlands Dairy Race. This year we even had a few overseas participants.”

With a time of 0.57.28 Charné Bosman from the Nedbank Running Club was crowned the overall female winner, while Melikhaya Frans from Ikhamva AC claimed the prize of overall male winner with a time of 0.48.22.

The winners of the various categories received a mixture of cash rewards and First Choice product hampers.
