In the men’s race, South African marathon champion, MTN Energade’s Kevin Evans, got his National Series title defence back on track when he claimed first place with a time of 4:35:35, ahead of Team Garmin Adidas’ Marc Bassingthwaighte (4:36:33) and Mannie Heymans (4:36:39). The result allows Evans to extend his lead in the series, which he hopes to defend successfully.
In the women’s event, Marsilio Projects’ Ischen Stopforth won her first ever National Series event victory in 3:44:39. Garmin Adidas’ Samantha Oosthuizen (3:56:07) took second place and Amoryn Saayman (4:06:56) rounded up the final podium place.
In the 45km MiWay Half-marathon, James Reid and Caitlin de Wet took the men and women’s title respectively.
Well done to everyone!
