WITH just one more of the popular Firebreak Fun 5 Night Series to be run next Monday the first four have been run with great enthusiasm, enjoyment and fitness.

Over 80 people per week have been taking part in this series. The racing has been really tight and fun to watch with Kwenza Ngubane and Lindelani Ximba putting on a good show.

Kwenza won the first two events and Lindelani the third event. Tobani Dladla, a member of Kwenza's running academy, came third and has been consistent in the runs so far.

Adding to the excitement the ladies have been finishing just seconds apart in the top places. Julie Lee is currently in the lead, followed closely by Tamara Snead and Theresa Hohls in third place.

Organiser Hilary Bruss told the Greytown Gazette, "this is the third year running for the Firebreak series - Andrew Mason with his Holme Lacy crew have set out all the trails and done a superb job - an extra couple of climbs here and there. We live in a magnificent part of the world and would like to extend our thanks to all who have supported the community soup and glühwein Monday. Get together with a small run thrown in for fun, supported by Origin Water and Racefood.”

Kwenza heads the development academy involved in training and assistance of new runners. Shoes and running kit is collected for the development academy at each of the runs.
