Training ON SA Vibes

South Africa has been a favourite winter training destination for European athletes for many years. What that means is that they head to sunny SA in their European winter months – our summer – for training in our great weather conditions, when running outdoors back home is likely to be washed out by snow, rain, wind and freezing conditions. Two of these athletes are George Mills of Great Britain and Tom Elmer of Switzerland, who are also part of the ON Athletic Club (OAC), sponsored by ON apparel and shoes. Both have been coming to SA for a number of years, and we caught up with them in between double training session days for a chat about their experience in and thoughts on SA. – By Sean Falconer
