THE Checkout Verulam Falcons trio of Bala Govender, Logan Pillai and Yunus Doba took part in the Pinetown and districts athletics club’s annual 25km race last Sunday.

The popular race started from Waterfall Shopping Centre to Lahee Park in Pinetown. Newly elected chairperson of the Checkout Verulam Falcons, Yunus Doba praised the logistics around the race and enjoyed the route.
