A SUCCESSFUL and unexpected addition to the popular Firebreak Five fun run trails was the response from runners to the request to donate old running shoes.

At the prize giving last month Andy Mason and Hilary Bruss handed over a number of pairs to race winner Kwenza Ngubane, who has introduced a number youngsters in a rural area to trail running, assisting and inspiring them to take up the sport.

Andy, Hilary and others will join this running group for some training sessions.

Anyone who would like to add to the shoe box challenge can contact Hilary on 082 383 9929 for details.
