The 3rd instalment of the Modern Athlete Sprint Series took place at Randburg Harriers last night, 27th March 2014. There was a great turnout from the Randburg locals as well as those travelling to the event to join the series. The weather played along and it was a perfect evening for a time trial.
Randburg offered 2 distances, a 5 Kilometre and an 8 Kilomtre. We are reliably informed that there is a 3rd distance which starts much earlier to afford some extra time in the local pub!
Congratulations to Garth Willis (19:46) and Rachel Leistra (20:00) for taking line honours in the 5km, while our own Donald Mathipa (29:18) and Mary-Ann Niewoudt (34:20) were first home in the 8km.
Again some great lucky draw prizes given away with an ecstatic Shaun “Horsepower” Naidoo winning the TomTom watch and 2 lucky shoe winners courtesy SweatShop and adidas.
We look forward to the next event on 2nd April 2014 being hosted by Khosa. Check out our Facebook Event Page for more details.
