Women’s Endurance Running Workshop

Most endurance runners consider running to be nothing less than a gift and they certainly don’t need to be convinced of the plethora of the associated benefits that enhance their lives. To ensure that we remain fit, healthy and uninjured – the Sports Science Institute of SA (SSISA) in conjunction with Futurelife High Protein Smart food, the Sweat Shop, Mizuno and SKINS have arranged a whole morning workshop – just for you – to empower women who love long distance running.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 16 May 2015 from 9h00 – 12h00 at the conference centre of the SSISA, in Newlands, Cape Town and it will provide food for your body, mind and spirit! Not only will you be able to listen to great experts in the field – but you can also mingle with like-minded female endurance runners whilst enjoying a Futurelife High Protein smoothie, healthy snacks and exploring what’s on offer from the Sweat Shop, Mizuno and SKINS.

Expect to learn more from Dr Lisa Micklesfield about how the female physiology changes and adjusts to long-distance running and how to optimise bone health; let Prof Julia Goedecke help you maintain nutrition practices that are bullet-proof and be empowered to do strength training so as to avoid injuries – with some nifty “take away exercises” compliments of our Strong2Run programme Manager – biokineticist Greg Hyson. Be inspired by iconic trail-running legend Landie Greyling – who is regularly blazing her way to top podium positions – yet manages to balance her life and look amazing at the same time! Learn some quick – easy to apply skin care tips for women who are carefully juggling precious little time. This highly informative and practical workshop will leave you feeling energised, empowered and enthusiastic to tackle long-distance running armed with fresh information and fun interactions – maybe alongside new running partners and friends!

Book your ticket, which costs R150 pp by visiting our SSISA website on www.ssisa.com/project/womens-endurance-running-workshop and clicking on the BOOK NOW icon. Seating is limited and women simply love our SSISA workshops- so don’t delay! The entry fee includes healthy snacks and entrance in a lucky draw for prizes from SSISA, Futurelife, Runner’s World Magazine, Mizuno, Skins and the Sweat Shop.

Volunteer Wildfire Services presents Fire & Fynbos Awareness Day

Organisers have revamped both routes, taking in sweeping views of Simonsberg and the surrounding mountains. The Fireman’s Revenge offers some incredible 360-degree mountain views and quality climbs, making the route unforgettable, while the Beat the Heat (the 5km fun run) is for the runner looking for a more relaxed meander among the vines, with spectacular scenery.

There’ll be non-stop activities for kids including fire truck rides, tree climbing and swings, snake shoes, treasure hunts, mock firefighting displays and interesting exhibitions. There’ll also be a bustling food court and tea garden.

100% of all proceeds go directly to VWS Firefighting Operations, which provides firefighting resources to CapeNature on a voluntary, not paid, basis.

Starting times: 14km Trail Run: 8am; Beat the Heat 5km Fun Run: 8:15am.

Pre-entries, available at www.quicket.co.za will close on 17 April 2015. You can also enter on race day, between 6:30am and 7:30am.

Walkers are welcome. No dogs please as this is held on private property

Old Mutual Two Oceans Ultra and Half Marathon

PLEASE NOTE: THE ULTRA AND HALF MARATHON ENTRIES ARE FULL.

In 2015, due to the fires in the area, the ultra route will pass over Ou Kaapse Weg and not Chapman’s Peak.

Dubbed “The World’s Most Beautiful Marathon”, this ultra is another running bucket list item and runners are rewarded with stunning views of the two oceans that are said to meet at the Cape of Good Hope. The 2015 route will remain on the traditional Chapman’s Peak route (unless deemed unsafe by authorities), which will no doubt be lined by supporters as always

Starting times: 21.1km: 6am; 56km: 6:30am.

Pre-entries for the 21.1km will open on 5 November for Blue Number Club runners (limited to 1 000 entries), 11 November for Licensed club members (limited to 5 500 entries), and on 14 November for runners who have previously entered (limited to 2 000 entries).
