Nedbank Running Club`s athletes shine at the Spar woman`s race in Durban

 

Lebogang Phalula races to victory in 25th Durban SPAR Women’s 10km

Durban at its best, Lebogang Phalula claimed a dramatic and sensational victory in the 25th Durban SPAR Women’s 10km race today (Sunday) in a time of 33.06.


Crossing the line in tears of joy, the Soweto-based runner collapsed on her knees after winning, completely overwhelmed by her victory.

 

On a picture perfect warm spring morning, with a slight breeze, the elite runners started off in a pacey fashion, with race favorite, Green Dream Team Athletes Irvette Van Zyl blazing a trail in the lead and Phalula and Mapaseka Makhanya close behind with Phalula’s twin Diana hot on their heels. But in the end it was Lebogang Phalula taking the honours, and last year’s second place Nedbank Running Clubs Rutendo Nyahora shaving off 14 seconds from her time, and Rene Kalmer coming in third position

 

The Nedbank Running Club Soweto Development athletes, twin sisters Keneilwe Sesing and Kefilwe Molefe also performed very well and are improving in every race. Keneilwe Sesing finished in 36:54 with Kefilwe Molefe not far behind her.

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
