FOURTEEN athletes from the Ugu Athletics Club participated in the Hillcrest Marathon last Sunday.

The athletes fared well, with five of them competing in the 21,1km half marathon and nine taking part in the 42,2 km marathon.

All the athletes finished comfortably, with some obtaining “exceptional” results, said club chair Pardon Mathebula.

“Two of our top runner, Menzi Tshayiza and Innocent Cele, did exceptionally well by running a sub-three, that is, running a marathon under three hours,” said Mathebula.

“This is a qualifying race for the Comrades Marathon, which takes place on June 10.

Ugu Athletics Club is proud of these performances,” said Mathebula.
