Cross Country: Adlam and cave dominate parlauf

2008-03-18 00:00

The 2008 cross country season opened on Friday night with the annual parlauf event hosted by the Westville Club.

Boxer’s Danielle Adlam and Cary Ann Cave from the Mr Price club formed a team combination that totally dominated the ladies six-kilometre event with an impressive winning time of 20 minutes four seconds.

The nearest competition came from the Westville combination of Cindy Marquiss and Michelle Wilmans, who trailed Adlam and Cave by over a lap.

However, they only secured their second position in the final sprint, having chased and swopped the Pinetown combination of Sam Hibbert and June Watson for most the six laps.

Garnet and Brightman Cebekhulu from the Mr Price club held off a strong challenge from Westville’s David Long and Hillcrest Villagers’s Derek Wasserfall.

Parlauf requires the athletes to run alternate one-kilometre laps for the total distance.
