It may be holiday time, but keep moving.
The journey continues....
Early training program for those working towards Comrades, but it can also be followed if preparing for a half marathon or marathon.
Florida Running Club was represented at the Washie 100 Mile race by our resident Iron Man Ian Smith.
The Washie 100 is a race between the Eastern Cape towns of Port Alfred and East London, starting on Friday evening with the cut-off 26 hours later on the Saturday evening.
Ian completed the course in 21:03:03 and finished in 16th place overall out of a total of 66 official finishers.
Well done Ian.
Congratulations to two of our multi-sport athletes who flew the Florida flag in Durban this past weekend.
Kerry Millar reinforced her recent award of Florida Female Triathlete of the Year by completing the event in a time of 5:47:40 and securing a 21st place divisional finish and 600th overall.
Ian Cloete came home in a time of 5:27:17 securing a 52nd place divisional finish and 377th overall.
Congratulations to all the Florida runners who stepped up to the challenge of the Comrades Marathon and completed this amazing race. To those who didn't quite make it to the start or couldn't quite beat the cut-off on the day, keep your chin up and look to the future.
