Under the banner of Concrete 360 Readymix, the 10km race commenced with a unique touch—a mixing truck that set the scene of a bustling city race. The support from neighboring marathon clubs, including Bethal, Standerton, Ermelo, and Sasol, was evident, as athletes from these communities joined in significant numbers. Leading the pack was the brand new Citroën C3 from Westvaal Secunda, guiding the front runners through the race. The unmistakable presence of Evander Athletics Club’s bus added an extra layer of enthusiasm, fueling the spirit of the race.
