Race reports and other info


Well done to Bombers what ran the Hunters Challenge in Pretoria on Saturday 29th. I believe the Jacarandas were in full bloom and were stunning and they inspired some awesome performances. Fantastic!! Results were as follows (apologies if I missed any names:

Megan 1:37,
Izelle 1:38,
Ilse 1:40,
Leigh 1:41
Gill 1:42,
Mark 1:55, Sue H 1:56 Norah 1st GM 1:56

Well done everyone. Clearly Leigh’s training and guidance is paying off.

Over the last weekend I ran the Golden Gate Challenge on the Maluti  Mountains near Clarens. It was a 3 day stage race consisting of 28km, 27km & 17km stages over some awesome but technical trails. I really surprised myself by finishing 4th, 9th & 5th in each of the days for an overall position of 6th (out of a 130 field). My time was 8:20 for the 72km. Thanks to everyone who sent messages of support.

On another more sober note. I believe there was an incident this morning where a car jumped a stop street and nearly collected a few Bombers who were running. Fortunately noone wad hurt, but it does highlight how careful we must be. Carry on wearing white tops and assume no driver has seen you. That way you remain in control. Run safe!!

This Sunday is the Soweto Marathon. I only know of Doug running, and if anyone else is running – Good luck to you all. Let us know how you did. There is a move for runners to wear a black armband in sympathy of those runners killed in Midrand. Show your support too.

In the afternoon on Sunday you can watch the New York marathon on SuperSport. It should be a good race with the Kenyans using it as a selection race for the Olympics.

For the tech savvy, follows the Bombers on Twitter @BryanstonBombrs (note the spelling.

Cheers Iano.
