The second race of the local “Get Out and Run” Winter trail running series took place on Sunday 1 August at Mosslands Farm just outside of Makhanda. Run on parts of the “Two Rivers Trail”, it was a wonderful return to competition after the last extended lockdown. Two St Andrew’s boys and at least four members of staff represented St Andrew’s College in the five, twelve and twenty kilometre races. All of our participants acquitted themselves well on technical, mostly single-track routes.
Notable performances include: Jaydan Ngugi winning the 5km race in a time of 26 minutes 38 seconds and Jacob Erasmus placing a pleasing fourth in the 12km race with a time of 1 hour 11 minutes and 37 seconds.
Well done to all those who participated. This series has been one of the more impressive events to emerge in the local area over the last year and our support of it has been appreciated.
