The Tough One 2013

Posted on November 28th, 2013

This weekend I did ‘The Tough One’ a 32 km race in Johannesburg, and I’m still a little stiff right now. The name gave me chills and some scary dreams the night before. However I have to say I envisioned something worse than what I experienced. Don’t...

A few weeks ago I get a MMS from Nike Running with a picture that said ‘Move Jozi’ and ‘The movement begins 22 August, save the date’. Cool, I thought it might be the ‘We Run Jozi’ 10 km race which I attended last year, so I signed up not know what ...

Pitch dark, nearby and tons of fun. It was my first time at one of the Kinetic Night Race Series in Johannesburg. The concept is really well thought out; a night trail run on golf courses around the city once a month. There are two distances 4 km and...

Northgate 10km 2013

Posted on July 22nd, 2013

Fast, quick and fairly flat. I enjoyed the Northgate 10km because I managed to clock a really good time of 48:30. Yay thought I’ve been a little out of practice since Comrades. I’ve also been struggling to get below 40 min for the 8 km time trials I...

Hills, wors and it was warm. The route is two laps of fairly hilly roads through the residential area of Randburg. There were tons of people doing the race which made the start pretty slow going. There was enough parking on the fields of Randburg Sp...

Wally Hayward Marathon 2013

Posted on May 1st, 2013

Fast, flat and two laps. The route of the Wally Hayward Marathon is a two lap course through centurion. There aren’t many hills to contend with, except the one at the finish which saps the last bit of energy you have left in the tank. The marathon i...
