Historic KZN race’s new format set to challenge runners

2013-10-26 00:00

ONE of KwaZulu-Natal’s most historic races takes on a new format tomorrow when the course moves to the Mpushini Conservancy adjacent to the Msunduzi river.

With a total ascent of 450 m, runners are going to need to be in outstanding form to match the race record of 46:07 minutes that multiple Springbok Ewald Bonzet recorded in 1982. This remains the race record. Bonzet’s time was set from the Thornville Chicken Farms down Fox Hill to what is now the Harry Gwala stadium and averaged 2.50 per kilometre for the 10-mile distance.
