IT has been a great experience all round – the “Firebreak Fun 5” night series run through plantations on local farms. Organiser Hilary Bruss told the Greytown Gazette: “It made me realise how a community can work together to accomplish a goal, and without my neighbours these runs would not have taken place. A big thank you to all of them.”

There were some extremely talented runners who took part in the final on Monday 31 August. Some had run the Mandela Marathon the previous Sunday over a very tough route, and despite hurting and running on tired legs, all did extremely well

There was a great turnout for the final, which was followed by a dinner and prize giving at the Green Bar. Everyone received at least one Racefood prize. The children were the first prize winners with Sam Mason the overall children’s series winner.

Hilary expressed her appreciation to neighbours the Masons, Hohls, Hills, Cleggs, Wessels and Webbs, for allowing their properties to be used for the firebreak trail runs.

Men winners:

1) Kwenza Ngubne.

2) Lindelani Ximba.

3) Welcome Zondi.

Women winners:

1) Elzare Slatter.

2) Theresa Hohls.

3) Loryn Chiazzari.

The good news is that Hilary will be organising a summer series­.
