Run/Walk For Life at Two Oceans 2011

Run/Walk For Life Athletics Club members travelled to Cape Town to take part in one of the country's best known marathons, the Two Oceans Ultra marathon. Our members were among the silver (under four hours), Sainsbury (under five hours) and bronze medalists. Mzwanele Maphekula finished 17th overall in a superb time of 3 hours, 16 minutes and 16 seconds.
He was also the second runner from the province home, with fellow Eastern Province athlete George Ntshiliza winning the ultramarathon. Running under five hours for the Sainsbury medals were Carriot Galela, Jene Banfield, Lionel Blaauw, Rooi Rikhotso, Terri-Lynn Penney and Welcome Jela.
Jene Banfield was the first Eastern Province woman runner home, while Terri-Lynn Penney was the third. Frith van der Merwe ran a great 1:35:13 in the half-marathon and then handed out the Blue numbers to runners finishing their 10th Two Oceans.
Out of all the Run/Walk For Life branches across the country, Mzwanele Maphekula and Jene Banfield had the fastest times by a male and female respectively in the ultra.
In the half, Frith Van der Merwe had the fastest time overall, while Joubert Retief was third-fastest male.
