A breakfast was held at the Pavilion Wimpy where Julian McKenzie from Black Tyre Corporation who sponsored and handed out the long sleeve T Shirts to our runners who started the Comrades Marathon this year. A big thank you to Julian for the T shirts and to Highway Athletic Club for sponsoring the breakfast.
Also a big thank you to Cecily Fraser for arranging for the goodies that was handed out at the gazebo. As well as to all the supporters who braved the early morning to get there on time to see the runners come through. Pam Stewart also brought along her sister Marge and husband Les Massey who were visiting from the USA.
Ladies please don’t forget the Time Trial League which will be hosted by Hillcrest Athletic Club and be held at their club house in Hillcrest. At present the Highway Walkers are leading the walkers section of the league. Remember if you are a runners we need you to attend as well as this increases our points on the league table.
Regards Brian Stewart

Club Kit and Accessories
Good news for those of you who find it difficult to get to Westville to buy Highway kit and accessories – I will soon be holding a small stock of items for sale. These will be available on a Saturday morning either before or after our training walks. Strictly cash only please.
Thanks to all the Highway volunteers who assisted at the gazebo on the day. And well done to all our runners who completed the race – results below.
