Got something to say?

    This is a really big race, but the venue is just too small. PWC offices are just wrong venue…also with fences squeezed people. Entrance in PWC at entry time felt crushed…also crossing main road from Menlyn was a safety concern epsecially after finish. I suggest have race start and finish at Menlyn. I do understand that race doesn’t cross Atterbury rd so makes it safer. Separate start for 10km and 21km is good idea, just we ran into back of 21km too soon. Also many 21km runners were late starters due to traffic and crush at entrance. Also late 21kms starters could not get thru 10km lined up. I also see that T shirts were made in China. Local races should promote buy local. The 10km was enjoyable route apart from running into back of 21km.

    The route was great. The start was incredibly chaotic which led to my starting late and being very stressed. Not good. The 3rd water table on the 21 ran out of refreshments and the 4th water table only had water and the 5th water table only had coke. Not good because Pretoria is incredibly hot.

  • Kudu

    Very tough route, but very nice area to run in. Water stops were a bit far apart, but it was only a 21, so no biggie.

  • Leanie

    It was a great race and I enjoyed it. The only thing that bothers me was that the refreshments was not enough and there was no toilets along the routes, for the men it was not a problem but I know of two elderly women who was in need of a toilet. The line in front of the women toilets at the venue was also very long and when the race start they thought that there would be mobile toilets along the road.

    Very tough 21, especially from 12 through 17,18km. All worth the sore legs on Sunday!!

  • Mariana

    Terrible start! Water points ran out of water! Not a good experience.

  • Kirsty

    Great route but thats about it. Ran the 21km and no water at watering points from 9km…..Seriously it was hot out there today, this in unacceptable. I want a refund!!!

  • Petro

    This race was poorly organized.Since 15km no water and coke.Thanks to the people in the suburb who supply water to the athletes out of their gardens. At the finish line no more medals for 21km athletes and no refreshments.The route was tough but will think twice to do it again due to all the shortfalls.

  • Coenie

    This year’s race was atrocious. Ran out of water, cups at the third waterpoint already. The league status of the club organising must be evaluated. Really dissapointed. Wish I could give no stars!

    The route was great but the organisation was a joke. Ran out of water and cups, ran out of medals for 21.1km way before cut off. Organisers please pull up your socks. I personally like the route!!
