Almost halfway through August already !!! Can you believe it ! At least the decent weather is on its way again so we should start to see more runners returning from hibernation and getting back on the road. We are in need of volunteers for Clocks and Bar Duty for the upcoming weeks at Time Trial. Red blocks below mark where help is needed.
The Annual HFPA Old Eds 21km and 10km happens on the 3rd of August 2014 and Sunninghill Striders Running Club has agreed to support one of the water points. We are looking for volunteers to assist. If you can help on the day, please contact anyone on the committee or via the club email address email@example.com.
Norrie Williamson (Old Mutual Virtual Coachnorrie www.dogreatthings.co.za ) will be available for some sessions this weekend (17 May and 18 May 2014) for both Comrades and non-Comrades runners. Norrie completed 19 Comrades marathons (fastest time 06:07).
We have sourced a very good quality (moisture management fabric) long sleeve running shirt branded in the club colours (white, with navy blue and gold trimming) as well as the Comrades Marathon logo.
If you have entered for Comrades Marathon 2014 and would like a shirt, you can place an order with your size via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and making a payment to the club's bank account (the same one as you use for the membership fees). The cost is R300.00 per shirt.
Once again, a fantastic turn out by our members saw 83 Ultra Medal finishers and 40 Half Marathon Medal finishers. The weather gods certainly shone on the day and the entire field was treated to the usual amazing views of Cape Town along the route. A special mention must go to 2 of our ladies, Carly Kent (who was the 40th lady home) and Jenny Kruse (who was 99th lady home) - super effort ladies !
Well done to everyone who took part !
