Boxer club dominates

2007-11-13 00:00

With R20 000 in prize money, it was no surprise that a large group of Mr Price runners contributed to the 20-plus athletes who completed the first of the undulating laps in a pack.

As athletes struggled to maintain pace on the climb backup to Manning Road, Prodical Khumalo and Tawanda Tokisi from Mr Price lead the break with Boxer's Elmore Sibanda looking in comfortable control on their shoulders.

As the pace began a long wind up towards the finish, it was the Boxer athlete who turned the screws opening a lead that he extended to seven seconds as he circled the field to the finish line, leaving Khumalo and Tokisi to take the minor places.

Harmony's sponsorship withdrawal has seen many of KZN's leading runners, including age groupers, moving to the Boxer club. Lungani Gcabashe took top honours in the 40-49 category, while Nicolas Dlamini and Jeremiah Ngwenya captured first and third in the 50-59.
