Fast, flat and fun is what MSA Multisport promised the participants at their second annual road race on Sunday 16 September.

The race attracted just over 2000 participants for the 10km and 5km which saw runners complete the distances between Wetton Road and Rosemead Avenue, with most medal finishers enjoying the fast and flat route on the day.

The race lacked the participation of the big names in WPA with many opting to rest for the Cape Town Marathon which is less than a week away. This did not deter Duane Fortuin of Kuils River Athletics Club who won in an unofficial course record time of 28:31, and Tanith Maxwell of Boxer Running Club (35:34), both collecting the R1000 prize money for the male and female categories in the 10km. Fortuin’s time could not officially be recorded as the course record as there was a dispute over the distance of the race which WPA officials confirmed was 400m short of the intended 10km.

“The confusion came in when the lead vehicle took a wrong turn with the front runners; besides the course is the same as last year which the referees gave us a certificate for, but overall I am happy with the turnout today especially after we increased our numbers from last year,” explains race director Nasrullah Enos. Nevertheless fun was had by all with many walking away with fantastic lucky draw prizes.
