FORMER Comrades Marathon winners Bongmusa Mthembu, Edward Mothibi, Ann Ashworth and Charne Bosman all shone at the Cape Town Virtual Marathon as they claimed victories in three different cities yesterday.

However, it was Mothibi and Annie Bothma who were crowned the official winners of the marathon after altitude adjustments were made to level the playing field among the Elite Invitational squad’s respective results from Cape Town, Potchefstroom and Pretoria.

While the focus of the marathon was on the three cities, the race attracted a lot of big names in the running world, with British long-distance runner Mo Farah doing the 10 km event in a time of 31:26 in his home country. Pietermaritzburg resident Mthembu finished the marathon in the Cape in a time of 2:17:31, while Mothibi claimed his victory with a time of 2:16:47 in his home province, North West.
