Time Sponsors:

Not the best of conditions but runners proved once again to be hardy lot as almost 2500 lined up for the Old Eds HFPA 21 and 10 km races. This year there was the added attraction of a 10 km walk, which although with not too many entries, the comments received afterwards bode well for a large increase next year.

Also the fact that it was a long weekend with last Thursday being a Public Holiday, and the cold weather, the field was around the numbers expected in view of the conditions.

Richard McEvoy fired the starters gun at 08; 00 sharp to set the runners off, and as it was so cold it was not surprising that the runners set off at a very good pace. The various attires lead credence to the very low temperatures, and there were some rather “strange” running outfits being worn.

In the mens 21 km race, it was a comfortable mornings work for Nkopane Seqhobqne (Gauteng Striders) as he finished in a time of 68; 47 over a minute ahead of Nedbank’s Shadrack Hoff, with his fellow Strider Siyabonga Makhaluza a further 22 seconds adrift. Nkopane controlled the race from the front and his ease of victory belied the conditions. He was only some three minutes behind the winning times of the past few years, and this is testimony to his ability to counter all conditions.

The ladies race went to Mr Price’s Charne Bosman in 1; 19; 58, an even more comfortable win as Charne was almost one and a half minutes ahead of Mpho Mabuza from Giyani Gallopers. Annah Wilkinson (RAC) was third, but well behind the first two finishers.

In the mens 10 km race the finish was keenly contested with Sibisiso Madikaza (Lydiard AC) having to hold off the charging Odwa Uhuru Tunyiswa (Nedbank) as they sprinted down the final stretch of road before running onto the Alan Lawson Oval for a lap to the tape. The winning time was 31; 59 with Odwa a mere three seconds behind. Paulos Radebe (ELIM AC) was well down on the leaders finishing in 33; 13.

It looked like a close run race in the ladies, but Michelle Williams (Nedbank) saw off the challenge of her team mate Olga Firsova to win in a time of 39; 09 just over half a minute ahead, with Caroline Wostmann (Breakthru) third in 40; 36.

Both Bruce Fordyce and Sonia Laxton, who have been almost “ever present” since the inception of the race once again took part, with Sonia winning the ladies Masters 10 km in 47; 06.

In the 10km walk, Lebogang Shange won the mens event in a very creditable time of 46; 38, whilst Lesley van Buuren (Wanderers) took the honours in the ladies with a time of 48; 05. Both of them were walking at under five minutes a kilometre which takes some doing.

Once again the race was exceptional well organized by the athletics section led by Greg Bortz, and they are to be congratulated in once again ensuring that the race remained one of the most popular and efficiently run races in Gauteng.

Also we must pay tribute to Morningside Country Club who assisted us in so many ways to ensure its success, and none more so than being instrumental in securing the sponsorship from HFPA.
