Lesotho’s Mabothile Lebopo overcame leg cramp to win Sunday’s Nedbank Durban City Marathon — which doubles as the SA Marathon championships — in a fast 2 hours 13 minutes and 52 seconds.

Lebopo’s fellow countryman, Moses Mosuhli, made a late charge through the field but ran out of distance finishing 60 m behind the previous Soweto Marathon winner, who earned R100 000 for his efforts.
