Road Running News – Let’s face it! This leap year has already leapt past January into February. February holds the promise of inter alia the Assegaai 3-in-1 (and fun run) on 20 February and an extra day on 29 February.
Come to think of it, should we not devote 29 February (which comes around only every fourth year) to those who can celebrate their actual birthdays only once in a cycle of four years? Leana was the sixth lady over 10 kilometres and Richard finished fourth in the 32 kilometre race. The performance of the day was, however Laiken’s first place in the ladies’ race over 42.2 kilometres. She will no doubt start the Assegaai Marathon as hot favourite to add another title to her increasingly impressive CV. Laat waai, Assegaai!
