Zimbabwean Elmore Sibanda out-ran Samuel Pazanga to win the Verulam Falcons half marathon in 66:52.

Mr Price’s Prof Mollen was third in 67:52. Monica Ktivhu, also sporting the Mr Price colours, led the women’s field home in 88:55.

Boxer’s Willie Majombozi completed eight laps of the Mannix Monster, recording 4:30:03 for the 64-km distance. Majombozi eclipsed the challenge from local athlete Thokozani Sibiya, who was under a kilometre behind by the finish line, while Willie Mtolo secured third as part of his build-up to Comrades.

Grace de Oliveira, who will also be looking to add to her Comrades medal collection, can be pleased with her 5:15:33, which suggests she is in silver medal form for June 15.
