2018-02-13 06:00

The streets around the Turfhall Sports Complex in Athlone were abuzz on Saturday morning with over 3000 walkers and runners taking part in the annual race of the Topform Athletics Club.

The league race is a favourite among the club runners, as the fast and flat route is the ideal taper-down exercise in preparation for the Peninsula Marathon which happens on Sunday.

Topform AC was the perfect host on the day, with the friendly marshals and club officials going the extra mile to keep all the participants happy.

“We as a club are grateful for the support we received, as the number of participants are up from last year. Rain was predicted, which never happened, so I guess it was the only disappointment on the day” says spokesperson Ameen Stemmet.

Nkosiyethu Sotyantya of Multisport AC (31:07) beat his nearest rival in Carlo Flink of Itheko AC (31:13) in a sprint finish for the title.

The ladies’ race went according to form, with Zintile Xiniwe of KPMG AC (36:56) adding another victory to her name.
