Nedbank Running Club Athletes performing well at the SA X Country Championships

 

 There were a massive total of 24 Nedbank Running Club Development athletes from the Soweto club that took part in the SA Cross Country Championships in George Western Cape this weekend. Apart from this there were several Nedbank Running Club athletes from all over South Africa who were representing their respective provinces.

 

There was a really strong line up in all events and the competition was tough. The CGA Senior Men`s team for the 12 km race consisted out of our Nedbank Running Club development athletes and they managed a second position to finish on the podium as a Team. Nedbank Green Dream Team Member Sibusiso Nzima led that team as he finished 7th overall.

 

The notable performance from our club was Simon Mpholo in the 40+ as he finished second and winning a silver medal  and also leading his team to win a 1st team prize and Gold medal. Nomasonto Skhosana also finished 2nd in the same category in the 40+ category. 

 

Keneilwe Sesing was another Nedbank runner in the top 10, finishing 8th in the senior women 8km.race

Several of our runners did well as they finished on the podium within their respective team categories.

 

A highlight was the evergreen Annatjie Botes from the Nedbank Running Club in George who won the masters category.

In a sprint for the line, Negassa triumphed in 2:15:05, to breast the tape 63 seconds outside Kenyan Shadrack Kemboi’s course record.

 

“This is my first race in

South Africa and I won, so I’m very happy,” Negassa said.

 

Gemeda took second position, just five seconds off the pace, and Yinesu was third in 2:15:22.

 

Nedbank Green Dream Team Athlete the only South African in the top 10, Xolisa Tyali, who led for more than half the race before settling into the pack, fought hard over the last few kilometers to end fourth in 2:16:03. He was the only South African athlete to finish among the top 10 by finishing 4th.

 

Nedbank Running Club Soweto’s Keneilwe Sesing came out trumps in the women’s 10km race in 38:05

 

 


Nedbank Running Club athletes to represent South Africa

Athletics South Africa have chosen a strong team to represent the country at the Southern Region Half marathon championships to be held on the 4th of October in Swakopmund ,Namibia.

The 7 man strong men`s team consist out of 4 Nedbank Green Dream Team athletes of which 3 of them are being couched by our Nedbank Running Club Central North West chairman and coach-Mr Pio Mpolokeng.

We are glad that our runners have been selected to represent our country because we know how hard they worked during the course of this year to achieve the necessary results for their inclusion in the team.

Well done Joel Mmonne, Kgosi Tsosane, David Manja, Myrette Brink and Sibosiso Nzima.

The South African marathon championships will be taken place on the 21st September during the Cape Town marathon and those athletes competing there was not considered due to the short time for recovery between the 2 races. 


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.

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!
