Athletes have fun while running

Beacon Bay was alive with the sound of runners in action on Saturday morning at the EL Eye Hospital 10km Border Championships and 5km fun run.

Yanga Malusi of Zwelonke AC won his second 10km race in as many weekends with an even more convincing victory than he scored a week earlier. Leading from the start Malusi already had a significant lead at the summit of the daunting Batting Road hill and then simply powered on to win at 31:14.

Malusi was chased, albeit from a distance, by the young Easy Equities Born 2 Run duo of Lithobe Menzeleleli and Nikelo Lolwana who secured the silver and bronze medals respectively.

Hanlie Botha led a Born 2 Run dominance of the women's race, winning the gold medal for both senior and veteran women in a time of 36:31. Her teammates Caryn Lategan and Andrea Ranger followed, while also taking the gold and silver in their 35+ age group.

Racing now moves on to the tough Bridle Drift half marathon in Mdantsane on Sunday.

Dean Venish captured these exciting moments on Saturday during the EL Eye Hospital 10km Border Championships
