Don’t miss fun run on Sunday

2013-12-06 00:00

WESTVILLE Athletic Club will be hosting the 20th Illovo Sugar 15 km Christmas Challenge on Sunday, starting and finishing at the club at the intersection of Maryvale Road and Syringa Avenue.

This annual run is renowned as one of fine fare and festivities as athletes finish their year with some fun and banter.

Many runners and walkers enjoy the opportunity to dress up and there are prizes offered for the first men’s and women’s teams from one club across the line plus the first “minibus” home. This mini bus must have a minimum of 10 athletes from the same club and this is a pre-entry category. Contact Alen Hattingh after hours on 031 701 1726.

The friendliest bus will be adjudged by appointed officials and is based on friendliness, best dressed and originality.

The race starts at 6 am and entry is R50 for runners and walkers. Athletes aged 65 and older participate for free and temporary licences are available at R15.

Entries will be taken on the day from 5 am plus at the clubhouse on Saturday, December 7, from 10 am to 4 pm.

Prize giving is at 8.45 am and there are prizes for all the men’s and women’s categories.
