ALMOST 14 000 women in KwaZulu-Natal graced the Spar Women’s 2018 five and 10 kilometre races.

Checkout Verulam Falcons AC women runners’ presence was felt at the race as they stood out with their Falcons’ bibs among the green masses.

Leading Falcons runners Ntokozo Ndlovu and Vitasha Ramnarayan had a photo finish as the duo crossed the 10 km run finish line together.

Walker Premi Reddy was the first Falcons walker. Senior citizen Savy Govender came in fourth place in her age category.

Shirley Marie achieved her personal best 10 km at 1:29.

The Falcons walking quads, Zaida Adam, Fawzia Kawada, Zubedia Hoopdar and Yugeshree Thaver, also showed a remarkable improvement and achieved personal bests.

The Falcons men, Eddie Singh, Bilal Rasool, Veeran and Nikhil Ramnarayan, joined in the day’s fun and supported the women.

Thereafter, Checkout Verulam Falcons AC hosted an Aches and Pains and Spar Women’s Race celebratory lunch. Members and their families were invited to share their Comrades and Spar Women’s moments. The event was concluded with the commemorative cutting of a cake.
