Entries open for village marathon

LACE-up for the Hillcrest Villagers Athletic Club‘s marathon and half marathon on Sunday, 12 February in Hillcrest.

The marathon is a 21km route that is done twice for the 42km, a route that follows Old Main Road to the beautiful tree-lined suburb of Winston Park.

“There are no big hills but just a pleasant, gentle decline all the way to the view site at the end of Jan Smuts Avenue in Winston Park and then a gradual climb back to the finish in Hillcrest,” said the club’s chairman, Peter Burton.

Early bird entries close on Sunday, 29 January and late entries close on Sunday, 5 February. Registration is on Saturday 11 Febraury and on Sunday morning, before the race, at the Hillcrest Villagers Athletic Club. All entrants will receive a lovely bag filled with goodies.

There are T-shirts and medals for everyone who finishes the race and lots of festivities on the field at the end of the race.

The bar will be open and breakfast available. There will also be a jumping castle for children, live music and lucky draw prizes.

“The race is timed by ChampionChip and is a perfect qualifier for the Two Oceans and Comrades,” said Peter.
