RESULTS:  Details here...

Willem Le Roux won the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon and Asics sponsored trip for two to the Barcelona Marathon!  Willem always runs in “Love Your Nuts” swimming trunks in aid of the foundation that raises awareness of testicular cancer.  You can read more about Willem’s cause and prize here
Brenton Ashby won the Solo Category in the Steam Train Challenge, which is a Mountain Bike / Run race over a distance of 90 Kms between Wellington and Ceres.  Brenton and Conrad Stoltz, who came second, was on track to beat the train but was, ironically, delayed by the train along the route.
Reginald Poss won the Devonvale 10 Km Trail run followed by Eugene Poss in second.  Daniel Arendse won the 5 Km event.
Last week, during the Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon track sessions we had a quick 1 Km Time Trial at the start of the session.  Some pretty impressive times were run, as can be seen from the results in a related post on this blog.
