LONG distance runner Anna Moeketsi is expected to turn up to defend her crown in the Interstate Bus Lines Sun-to-Sun 21,1 km half marathon in the women’s category on 13 August.

Also tasked with the same assignment is Chabedi Nyedimane in the men’s senior category. Both athletes won the 2015 edition of the 21,1 km.

Nyedimane completed the gruelling 21,1 km in 1:07:07 and Moeketsi clocked in at 1:20:25.

Lebenya Nkoka and Vuyiswa Khauta are expected to defend the 10 km titles in the men’s and women’s category as last year’s winners.

This year’s race is the fourth edition of the race organised by the Nedbank Fast Legs Running Club.

Entry is R90 for the 21,1 km race and R70 for the 10 km race.

Both races will finish at the Mmabana Stadium in Thaba Nchu.

The main 21,1 km race will start at the Black Mountain Hotel, while the 10 km race will start at Blydskap Farm at the Groothoek Dam.

The top 10 athletes finishing the 21,1 km race will all receive gold medals plus prize money.

The winner in both the men’s and women’s categories will receive R2 000, with second and third place taking home R1 500 and R1 000 respectively.

The 10 km winner, in both the men’s and women’s category, will get R500 plus a gold medal, with second and third place receiving R300 and R200 plus silver and bronze medals respectively.
