Road Running News – Now it is “Game On” After a well-executed “kick off” on 14 January, it is now really “game on”.
The Assegaai Marathon Club is on the attack and ready to score “big time”. Amidst a mood lifting buzz, prospective club members attended to the necessary paper work required to be registered with our club, Athletics Mpumalanga and Athletics South Africa. Some also bought club vests and running shorts. One of the two special highlights of the evening shone brightly when Werner Steinberg of Werner and Mariska Steinberg from Run Away Sport in Pretoria with the lucky draw winners Run-Away Sports gave an informative talk on running shoes. In a neatly prepared and wellpresented highlights package, he ran through all the important ins and outs and do’s and dont’s pertaining to our foot wear. The other of these special highlights came in the form of a lucky draw as a result whereof the following lucky ones came to light:
- Sipho Dhlongolo, Lucky Hleza and Gerhard Oosthuizen who received shopping vouchers to the value of respectively R200, R300 and R700.
- Muzi Khumalo and Zimeli Mtshali who each became the proud owner of a brand new pair of running shoes. Skouer aan skouer met TWK Agri (met beide se skouers boonop stewig aan die wiel) en met die ganse Piet Retief nogeens agter ons, loop ons nou 20 Februarie en dus die 2016 Assegaai 3-in-1 storm.
Met ‘n pretdraf nou ook op die spyskaart, kan mens seker maar van ‘n 4-in-1 praat … Origens lyk dit kompleet of die “blitspatrollie” begin spoed optel en die “slakke” al hoe lekkerder begin seil. Laat waai, Assegaai!
