Gamble Pharmacy upstaged in Night Relay

2019-06-20 06:00

THERE was great excitement at Nelson Mandela Bay’s unique Town Lodge Business Night Relay when defending champions Gamble Pharmacy got beaten for the first time since 2014.

The warm winter’s evening resulted in fast times with SPAR Eastern Cape DC Men pulling out all the stops to see their last runner pulling ahead and crossing the line first in a time of 56 minutes 59 seconds.

This was just 12 seconds ahead of the Gamble Pharmacy team which hadn’t lost a Night Relay race since the end of the 2014 season and only their 4th loss since the inception of the Series in 2011.

The Series offers a fantastic training opportunity for companies wanting to take part in the upcoming Train Race on the 18th August.

The Town Lodge Business Night Relay takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month with the next round taking place on Tuesday 9th July.

Entries are already open on the website. Running teams are to comprise of 5 runners whilst working teams are for 3 walkers with each team member having to complete a 3.5km loop within the stadium precinct.
