We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who participated and supported both the Cango Half and Full marathons, as well as the Old Mutual 10km on Saturday.

The weather conditions were particularly conducive to fast times in Oudtshoorn and many enjoyed PBs for breakfast once again.

Well done everyone on all their achievements.
