Road Running News – Last word not yet spoken. It is true that the 2016 TWK Assegaai 3-in-1 was both well organised and well presented, and now is part of the happy history of our club as well of our entire community.

It is also true that our event was such an enormous success that the last word about it has not yet been spoken; and will probably not be spoken soon. You probably noticed the somewhat foreign looking surname of the winner of the marathon namely Vincent Kipchirchir.

Some of you perhaps concluded that he hails from Kenya which is is a well-known source of internationally, top performing, middle and long distance athletes. Well, Mr Kipchirchir indeed comes from Kenya and boasts a personal best time of 2:13:04 (set in Bonn in 2008) over 42,2 kilometres. He might be past his best but is clearly still a force to be reckoned with.
