VAN ZYL ACHIEVES PERSONAL BEST AT TOTALSPORTS LADIES RACE STELLENBOSCH

Irvette Van Zyl (Nedbank Athletics Club) had a stellar day of running on Saturday, 09 August 2014 claiming the 10km Totalsports Ladies Race Stellenbosch victory in a time of 32 minutes 20 seconds, a new personal best for this inspirational runner who recently returned from injury.

“I’m still in shock,” said a delighted Van Zyl.  “I was hoping for a time of 33:15, not once did I expect to achieve a new personal best.  Everything just went right today.  The route wasn’t easy.  There were a lot of turns with a few hills.  I knew Rene was close to me.  I kept hearing something behind me, but I think it was my pony tail hitting against my sun glasses”.

“I am very happy to have won two out of the three Totalsports Ladies Race events this year,” continues Van Zyl.  “Unfortunately I would have had to be in two places today had I wanted to win the Johannesburg race as well.  I am enjoying running again and am therefore very excited about what lies ahead. Rene and I will be celebrating Women’s Day for the rest of the week here in Stellenbosch”.  Rene Kalmer came in second, while Zintle Xiniwe finished third.

Alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer, Jimmy Nevis closed off the Women’s Day celebrations by serenading runners and spectators at the Coetzenburg Stadium.

The Totalsports Ladies Race supports PinkDrive, a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) that is committed to improving breast cancer awareness, education, and providing and offering services to women across South Africa.  For more information on PinkDrive visit www.pinkdrive.co.za

Road Safety

It’s that crazy time of year again when endurance junkies are turning over kilometre after kilometre preparing for their 2014 race or fitness schedule. We are constantly reminded by the sobering news that a runner, cyclist, triathlete or sporting enthusiast has been found unconscious or fatally knocked-down while out doing what they love best. These are followed by queries as to whether anyone knows the person or more importantly, knows how to contact the family urgently. At large events this can be mayhem and in remote areas critical.

As road safety is a cause pertinent to us all, we chatted to Patrick Baransky; Nedbank Sponsorship Manager, on the need for safety ID bracelets.

“I’m always amazed by the lack of contact details sports enthusiasts carry on their person. Could a Good Samaritan assist you should they come to your assistance and you can’t speak for yourselves? What about your training partners, do they even know your chronic medical conditions, allergies or next-of-kin contact details?”

To help

MAKE SAFETY HAPPEN

Nedbank have negotiated a 20% discount on purchases made through the www.iceid.co.za website.

Please use NEDBANK as a discount coupon code. There is a Nedbank green silicone strap that is available! Most products can store four to six lines of key details.    

Should you want an even cheaper alternative, try dog-tags with key contact and medical details, and keep on your person or tied to shoes.

Finally, as the mornings are becoming darker, please be aware of your visibility to motorists. Start wearing reflective gear or bright visible colours. For safety purposes, those exercising alone should not use music for company, or if you insist, have the music turned down low, and only in one ear - this way you can still hear the things around you.

Safe training!

Nedbank Running Club
