THE 2016 Swift Half Marathon was a resounding success. This annual event, sponsored by Hulamin and the Rotary Club of Pietermaritzburg, drew a record attendance and was run under ideal conditions.

The overall winner was Slindile Gubese of the Phantane Athletic Club in a time of 1:7:52.

The first woman home was Linda Gabela of the Muden Athletic Club in a time of 1: 32:56. Not only was the half marathon event well supported, but many turned out to run or walk the 10km race and fun run.

The Hulamin Athletic Club wishes to thank their sponsors, the traffic department and Rotarians for their assistance in making this a bumper year. - Supplied.
