Inaugural MSA race lives up to the hype

2017-09-26 06:01

Multisport’s inaugural race held in Wynberg on Sunday lived up to its marketing campaign for being fast, flat and fun.

Just over 2000 club runners and walkers took part in the two distances that were on offer (5km and 10km) and many relished the overcast conditions, which were ideal for running faster times.

The host club was established in 2015 and caters for cycling and triathlon as a sport, with their running club growing steadily in the two years of existence.

“I am overwhelmed with the support we got for our event.

“We catered for more than 3000 people to make sure all finishers received a medal for our inaugural race.

“The feedback we got from the runners after the race was positive, but one can never be a 100 percent satisfied,” says Nasrullah Enos, the race director and chairperson of the club.

The Wynberg club operates from the William Herbert Sports Complex and has built up a reputation for churning out quality road runners, with the likes of Ashley Smith and Sibusiso Madikizela being among the top 10km runners in the WPA league.

“The funds raised from the race will go towards our academy and our development programme, which has attracted some of the top runners to the club.

“We don’t offer them money, but assist them in finding employment and purchasing running gear if needed,” adds Enos.

The winner of the 10km race for men was Sibonno Soldaka of CPUT, setting a new course record of 30:51, with Madikizela in second place.

Fortunate Chidzivo of Nedbank (36:40) continued with her domination in the women’s race with her second victory in two weeks.

Multisport won the team prize for men with four of their athletes finishing in top five positions in the open category.
