Marthinus Jenkins Memorial 10km – 20 October 2012

The route was changed from the 2011 version with the Whites Road incline still present and added on a scenic out-and-back section via Sanparks Ebb-and-Flow with the turning point at Eden Adventures (one of our sponsors). The start was at the Caltex garage in Wilderness and finish at the very comfortable and inviting Pomodoros restaurant (another sponsor).

Torrential rain forecasted for the day resulted in a lower turnout for the race but the diehards were present. In total we had 58 entries for the 10km and 3 members for the 3km Fun run.



The results in short are as follow:

10km Open Male

(1) Lloyd Bosman (Nedbank) 0:35:13    (2) Melikhaya Msizi (Knysna) 0:35:14    (3) Hermanus Jonkerman (Nedbank) 0:37:41

    (From Justine – Club Secretary)
    Hello everyone,

    In addition to Juan’s thanks to the many club members and families who arrived to help in the rain on race day 20 October, please accept my sincere thanks too. In the end we had 58 participants in the 10km and another 3 people in the Fun Run. Had the weather been better I think we could have expected quite a few more people, and from all accounts the feedback was very good, both from participants and race referee. The good news is that the club even made a small profit, thanks in large to the generosity of our sponsors, Pomodoros and Eden Adventures.

    The suggestion is that we have a Helper’s Run / Walk along the route on Wednesday 31 October. The Walk will start at 17H00 and the Run will start at 17h15. We have water sachets (available at the start), and a complimentary 500ml bottled water and a medal at the finish. Entry is free to everyone who helped! If you know of anyone who would be willing to keep time for us, it will be appreciated (please contact me). At this stage the weather prediction is favourable for next Wednesday. We will keep an eye on it and confirm closer to the time. If you think you may be interested to come and walk / run, please reply to me.

    Many thanks again, and kind regards, Justine
