Botha and Malusi win PWC 10km
After the much-needed rain abated late on Friday afternoon, over two thousand runners and walkers lined up at the Old Selbornian Club for the first race on the Border fixture list for the new year, the Price Waterhouse Cooper (PWC)/Old Selbornian Road Runners 10 and 5km road race.
Meandering through Bunkers Hill, Stirling and Nahoon, the course was a real tester. The men and women winners however made light work as Yanga Malusi of Zwelonke AC and Hanlie Botha of Easy Equities Born 2 Run finished in times of 31:17 and 38:07 respectively.
Malusi was followed by Malixole Kalideni of Old Selbornians while Kemoreng Meabanawe of Platinum FS AC finished third. Cindy Schwulst of Born 2 Run was the second woman home and Chantal Lombard of Oxford Striders third.
President of Old Selbornian Road Runners, Sharon Eldridge said the race once again lived up to its reputation of attracting a very large field and congratulated overall winners Hanlie Botha and Yanga Malusi.
“A big thank you to our anchor sponsor PWC for their continued support and to each and everyone who contributed to the success of the race.,” she added.
